Photographer Evan Sung of Evan Sung Photography - Biography

Brooklyn, NY

September 2015

Manhattanites may get a bad rap: stuck to the city, in love with the metropolis, happily captive of the MTA and taxis. But Photographer Evan Sung is a native Manhattanite who’s found as much comfort and inspiration abroad as his big (apple) hometown. His travels in the last year alone have taken him to locales from Iceland to Emilia-Romagna and from Senegal back to Seventh Avenue.

A prominent food, lifestyle, and travel photographer now based in Brooklyn, Sung has spent his career expanding his perspective and sharpening his focus. In addition to his long freelance tenure with The New York Times, he’s traveled and photographed for clients the including Vogue, The Wall Street Journal, GQ, Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Gourmet, Art Culinaire, Delta SKY, and many others.

Over the course of his career, Sung has developed a natural ability to connect with the spirit of any culinary landscape. A 2015 time-lapse photo project at Atera captured the nuances of prep and service behind some of the city’s most exciting cuisine. Sung’s work has hit hard cover as well, appearing in several cookbooks with Michelin-starred chefs, including To the Bone with Chef Paul Liebrandt, Classico E Moderno with Chef Michael White, Marc Forgione’s eponymous cookbook, and North with Icelandic Chef Gunnar Gislason. Forthcoming cookbooks include tome’s by Masaharu Morimoto and Alex Stupak.
