Anders Wallace is a photographer and filmmaker originally from South Florida. He moved to New York City in 2007 to study at the School of Visual Arts. Since then he has been assisting for New York photographers while refining his own work and exploring moving video as a medium. His pictures are made rather than simply taken. They are constructed illustratively to form a filmic and often fantastical narrative using classic archetypes of Mythology to discuss identity and relationships in the de-romanticized landscape of Modernity. Wallace is looking to apply his dramatic visual style and rich conceptual subtext to the commercial worlds of Portraiture, Advertising, and Editorial pictures.
He recently won 1st place in SVA’s 5th Year Award which was sponsored by FotoCare, Gotham Imaging and Brewer-Catalmo Portfolios and judged by myself, Kris Graves, Peter Berberian, Denise Wolff and Adrian Mueller.
