Born in Canada in 1970 and raised in Texas, Anderson began his career working for local newspapers.

“This image was made in a loft in Brooklyn, New York, where I lived with Marion, my partner and now my wife, and where we started our family. It’s where I came of age, I guess, and where I photographed most of the pictures for my book Son. It represents youth and love and home, and it’s also particular to a place where we lived, and Brooklyn as a community.” — Christopher Anderson
