Andrew Kung is a photographer living and working in New York.


A graduate of UC Berkeley’s business school, Andrew worked in Silicon Valley before creating his first body of work; in 2017, Mississippi Delta Chinese was first published by The New York Times. His second body of work, The All-American (2018-2022), was featured on Dazed, i-D, Artsy, AnOther, Paper Magazine, NOWNESS, CNN, and NBC. The work received awards from PhotoVogue (100 Next Great Fashion Image Makers), LensCulture (Summer Open Winner), Photolucida (Critical Mass Winner), and Maine Media (Arnold Newman Prize Finalist), resulting in group exhibitions across London, Massachusetts, and Seattle. Dreaming on the Hudson (2022-present) is Andrew’s ongoing project.

In what ways does nature inspire or inform your work?

Nature – in its seasonality and its vastness – is both the subject and the backdrop of my work as I explore human interactions with the history of the land. From making images to simply flaneuring, being in nature activates my connectedness to time and place.

What does it mean to you to be part of a thriving ecosystem?

To be a part of a thriving ecosystem is to be conscious stewards of the land, recognizing the fluid state of give and take.
