New York has named its first-ever photographer-in-residence: Christopher Anderson, of the Magnum photography cooperative.
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Chris for many years, and have been continuously blown away by his work,” said editor-in-chief Adam Moss in an announcement. “We created this new position to provide a showcase for his work and to deepen the magazine’s commitment to original photography.”
“We thought that we could be the ideal outlet for Chris to explore his painter’s palette of image-making,” added photography director Jody Quon.
Last year Mr. Anderson photographed Occupy Wall Street and took portraits of combat photojournalists for New York.
He will now shoot editorial work exclusively for the magazine, beginning with this week’s moody “Workplace Confidential” photographs. Mr. Anderson’s photography has appeared in National Geographic, Vanity Fair, W, and the Times Magazine, among others.
