Statement from Christopher Anderson on the back of print “Sete, France. 2011.”
“If it is expected, what is the point? Without the unforeseen, there is no thrill, no revelation.”
Christopher Anderson is known for his emotionally charged, artfully drawn images that explore themes of truth and subjectivity. And, he is one of today’s most influential photographers. His origins began in war reporting. Later they transformed into something more intimate. His work blends the worlds of commercial, art and fashion work. But, always with a foundation in documentary.
Anderson was born in 1970 in Canada and grew up in west Texas. His photographic career began working for local newspapers. In 2000, on assignment for the New York Times Magazine, he boarded a small wooden boat with 44 Haitians trying to sail to America. However, the boat sank in the Caribbean. The photographs received the Robert Capa Gold Medal. Furthermore, they marked the beginning of a ten-year period as a contract photographer for Newsweek Magazine and National Geographic Magazine. After that, in 2011 he became New York Magazine’s first-ever Photographer in Residence. This is a notable collaboration that would also mark Anderson’s shift into portraiture and fashion.
