Faculty Department is a wonderful and inspiring book / visual project of photographer Justin Chung that offers glimpse into lives, spaces and intimate moments of creative individuals worldwide. These visual essays together with written word showcase lives of 13 individuals who had made a personal impact on author. Among them are Tokuhiko Kise of legendary Truck Furniture and Bird, Lauren Snyder from Primary Essentials and editor of The Paris Review Lorin Stein.
Intention of the photographer was to show creative force behind their lives, process of creating and moments of daily routine. Chung believes that “these vignettes offer a rich perspective on these individuals’ philosophies and approach to life; things we can all learn from, or simply appreciate.”
