Jury's Feedback

  • © Christopher Anderson

    Judge: Christopher Anderson

    Born in Canada, 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.

    Anderson’s early work from conflict zones earned international acclaim and prizes such as two World Press Photo Awards and Magazine Photographer of the Year.

    In 2011 he became New York Magazine’s first ever Photographer in Residence. His current work crosses genres, from documentary to art, portraiture and fashion.

    Christopher is a member of Magnum Photos. He is the author of four monographs of photography.
