Photographer Justin Chung has been working on a project over the last year that will come to fruition this winter in the form of a beautifully printed hardcover book. I'm looking forward to picking up a copy for myself soon. Just a handful of folks featured are Tokuhiko Kise of Truck Furniture, New York based carpenter Angus McIntosh of Ennis McIntosh and Lauren Snyder owner of Primary Essentials.
"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."
