Christopher Anderson

Christopher Anderson first received international attention for his documentary work from conflict zones all over the world and is a member of Magnum Photos since 2005. The birth of his son in 2008 became the starting point for a very personal, intimate photography project: “For many years I have traveled extensively to document the emotional experiences of others. It feels like everything I ever photographed only prepared me for this project. I think this series of photographs is my most important work, they are a record of love and a reflection on the seasonal nature of life.” (Christopher Anderson)

“Son”, first published in 2012 by Kehrer, gained critical acclaim and was awarded the German LEAD AWARD in 2013. In 2020, Stanley/Barker Books published a sequel, this time devoted to Anderson’s daughter, titled “Pia”. The sun-filled portraits and images of family scenes and domestic life in this body of work condense into an emotional ode to childhood. “The images portray a father-daughter relationship as well as a photographer-subject collaboration as Pia takes control of her character. The passage of time comes with a certain melancholy, but also a declaration of hope that guides these photographs.” (Christopher Anderson)

“Pia” became a great publishing success, gained critical acclaim and sold out fast. Now both, a second edition of “Pia” and a new, reviewed, updated edition of “Son” have been released and are both available through Stanley/Barker Books.

A third book, dedicated to his wife, Marion, is in preparation for release in November. “His new book, “Marion, marks the closing chapter of a trilogy of books that chronicles their lives, and loves in beautiful depth over the course of their partnership.“ (Stanley/Barker).

Robert Morat Galerie is thrilled to be able to present in Berlin an exhibition of images from all three series in fall 2022 on the occasion of Berlin Photo Week and the 75th anniversary of Magnum Photos. Born in 1970 in Canada, Christopher Anderson today lives and works in Paris.
