Christopher Anderson first gained recognition for his pictures in 1999 when he boarded a handmade, wooden boat with Haitian refugees trying to sail to America. The boat, named the Believe In God, sank in the Caribbean. In 2000 the images from that journey would receive the Robert Capa Gold Medal.

A full member of the world-renowned Magnum agency since 2010, Anderson is active as a documentary photographer while also making very personal work. His entire oeuvre can be considered as one: his journalism is as personal as his autonomous photography, always attempting to show the humanity behind the headlines. What often makes him stand out is the use of particular, soft-toned colours that result in the surprisingly stark presence of the people and objects depicted.
