100 Women We Love 2016

Here’s to this year's class of the women who inspire us, give us hope, make us laugh and make us want to get up and dance. 


At only 24, Kim Geronimo aka The Street Sensei is making a name for herself with her provocative, edgy, artistic, high-end fashion photography. Her work conveys a unique aesthetic philosophy and creative passion. She started out her career on an entrepreneurial track, but began dabbling as a photographer while she studied abroad and traveled in Asia during col-lege. Last fall, she got her foot in the door of New York Fashion Week SS16, which she took her photography to a much higher professional level. (She’s also blowing up on social media. You can follow her on Instagram: @thestreetsensei.) “Photography has been a different journey of finding myself,” she says. “It’s almost as if I’m learning how to love someone.” She hopes that those who encounter her stunning photographs will become inspired to be themselves, and then can express themselves however they want. When asked about the most satisfying aspect of her work, she says, ”I think [it’s] been meeting people that inspire me and push me to do better, and traveling to beautiful places I’ve either always wanted to go to, or never even once thought about going. That’s the beauty of my work; it leads me to discover my limit—and my worth.” –SLO
