Christopher Anderson is one of the most influential contemporary photographers working today. Born in western Canada, Christopher grew up in Texas, but thanks to his French wife and children, he was naturalized as a French citizen in 2017.
He first gained recognition in 1999 when he boarded a small wooden boat loaded with 44 Haitian immigrants trying to sail to America. The boat sank in the Caribbean. The images, commissioned by The New York Times Magazine would receive the Robert Capa Gold Medal in 2000.
Since then, Christopher’s work has defied categorization as he slips between the worlds of documentary art, commercial and fashion photography.
From 2011 to 2013 Christopher was New York Magazine’s first ever “Photographer in Residence”, a collaboration that helped shape the current visual identity of the magazine.
Christopher photographed the last portrait of sitting President Barack Obama in the White House and the first of Donald Trump in the Oval Office.
His selected commercial clients include Hermès, Maxmara, Theory, Audemars Piguet, Canada Goose, Golden Goose, Nike, Apple, IBM, Audi, Hennessy and JP Morgan, to name a few.
He is the author of seven monographs of photography. ‘Approximate Joy’ released last year was acclaimed in The New Yorker and exhibited at the Danziger Gallery in New York City.
His latest book ‘Pia’ was published in September 2020 and sold out in record time.
