Yoon Cho

Co-Founder, Senior Partner

Yoon Cho is a visual ethnographer whose analytic skills are surpassed only by her eye for detail. This combination grounds her work in the real world, the “What’s next?” in a research question.

Yoon’s extensive experience in visual ethnography and field research has also guided her work on several documentary films, including Taking the Heat, which was telecast nationally on the award-winning PBS series, Independent Lens. The film is now shown in university classrooms and in diversity training programs at Cal Fire and other fire services.

Yoon received her training in visual and social anthropology from the University of Southern California, as well as on the streets of New York and Los Angeles.

I have traveled the world to see mountains and oceans. But I did not pause to witness the solitary dew drop on a single blade of grass just beyond my doorstep.
