Required Reading: Faculty Department

January 29, 2015

Surrounded by creative and inspiring people on a daily basis, New York fashion and lifestyle photographer Justin Chung decided to document the lives of artists, friends, and mentors. And this led to Volume One of Faculty Department, a magazine packaged as a hardcover book that 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.”

“The idea of Faculty Department started when I was on a monthlong assignment in Paris during the fall of 2012,” explains Chung in the Introduction. “The task was to document and profile individuals making their mark in creative fields. Over five weeks, I photographed artists, designers, and entrepreneurs. I found the resulting glimpses into their lives both intriguing and insightful.” Take a look at some selections from the book and see if you agree.
