“These photographs are informed by my interest in the narrative of art, shifting cultural values, and a landscape that encompasses not only nature, but the fabricated places that cover it and butt up against it. They are an attempt to reveal the remarkable in the commonest of places.”
Born in Edinburgh Scotland, William Anderson immigrated to Canada in 1975. After twenty-five years of using traditional photography methods, including Gum Bichromate, Cyanotype, and Platinum printing, he now uses digital acquisition and printing methods.
Anderson has appeared in PhotoLife and Exposure Magazines, and in 2009 attended MOMA New York’s Portfolio Review.
In 2010, he mounted a public solo exhibition at the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies in Banff. His work is featured in private and public collections across the country, including the Calgary Civic Arts Collection, the Petro Canada Collection, and in the collection of the Canadian Ambassador to Czechoslovakia.
Anderson currently resides in Vancouver, British Columbia.
