About the Publication

Inside the Lives of
Noteworthy Individuals.

Faculty Department is a personal photography project and visual journey by Justin Chung that focuses on the lives, spaces and stories of creative individuals worldwide. Chung’s interest in photographing creative people came alive when he moved to New York City to pursue a career in commercial fashion photography and portraiture in 2011. Chung found that while he was inspired by the work these creatives were producing, what he felt most connected to was their process—how the smallest intricacies in their daily lives contributed to making them the most effective, most happy, and most real. It is these intimate details Chung hopes to capture in the pages of Faculty Department.

    Faculty Department
  • Faculty Department offers a glimpse inside the lives of noteworthy individuals—while at work, inside their homes, during a particular daily routine or within the stillness of a moment. It is my hope that these vignettes offer a rich perspective on these individuals' philosophies and approach to life; things we can all learn from, or simply appreciate. —Justin Chung
