Kim Hjelmgaard

Based in Berlin, Kim Hjelmgaard is the Deputy Foreign Editor for USA Today. Kim keeps everything on the record whether he’s writing a piece or taking iPhone photos of his interviewees for his Tumblr account, which collects stories through pictures in real-time. This year, he traveled with migrants crossing into Austria, Serbia, Croatia, Macedonia, and Greece for nearly a month, where he learned “everything and nothing.” Kim gives a rare glimpse into a global crisis that affects all nations and their borders through his writing and video documentation of the world.
