Faculty Department

By Justin Chung

Sean Hotchkiss, Kevin Burrows, Lucy Brook, and Chris Wallace


Faculty Department focuses on the lives, spaces, and stories of creative individuals worldwide. Photographer Justin Chung's interest in capturing creative people came alive when he moved to New York City to pursue a career in commercial fashion photography and portraiture in 2011. Justin found that while he was inspired by the work these creative individuals 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 Justin is most eager to share with readers.

The following individuals opened their personal and unique environments to Justin: Thomas Lehoux, Lauren Snyder, Frank Muytjens, Lorin Stein, Tokuhiko Kise, Philip Crangi, Angus McIntosh, Richard Haines, Filippa Hallstensson, Sam Lambert, Ted Harrington, Kristoffer Dahy Ernst, and Jens Risom.

Alongside Justin's minimal, unforced style of photography are original texts on each subject by some of today's leading fashion and style writers. Combined with beautiful production quality and designed by Faculty in Vancouver, Faculty Department deftly shows that it's the little things which should be cherished for how they enrich our lives.
