Photographer of the week: Christopher Anderson







"Emotion or feeling is really the only thing about pictures I find interesting. Beyond that it is just a trick."










Born in British Columbia in 1970, Christopher Anderson spent much of his early years in Texas, where his father was a preacher, before moving to New York City and then Paris. His life in photography began in the photo lab of the "Dallas Morning News" where he learned to develop film and print pictures. In 1993, Christopher was hired as a staff photographer for a small Colorado newspaper. Never comfortable with the idea of working as an employee, he left the newspaper in 1995 and began doing freelance assignments.

Initially working in color, Anderson began photographing a wide range of subjects for magazines. In 1996, he became a contract photographer for U.S. News and World Report. Working now in b&w, Anderson was honored with the Robert Capa Gold Medal Award. Later that year, he photographed the stone throwers of Gaza, and was named Kodak's "Young Photographer of the Year". In 2003, he published his first monograph, Nonfiction, published by deMo.
