An award-winning photojournalist and portrait photographer, André Chung creates dynamic portraits, captures decisive moments and stories with the goal of grabbing the viewers attention and encouraging them to take a deeper look.

Andre was the recipient of the 2021 Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award for Domestic Photography, and was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize five times while a staff photographer at The Baltimore Sun. In addition, he has also received the George Polk Award, and the Sigma Delta Chi award. He was twice named the Times Mirror Journalist of the Year. He recently released a film titled “Eroding History” which can be viewed on Vimeo and is currently making the film festival rounds.
