About Theo Anderson

"The photographs are not so much about place as they are about transformation. The context of everyday American life is used in my visual exploration. The search began in the early twenty-first century and is expressed in a myriad of episodes that inform my life," says Anderson. The episodes are revealed in his artist books; designed, printed and bound by Anderson under the moniker wilbureditions.

Theo Anderson graduated from Temple University with a BA in political science and discovered photography while attending graduate school at Lehigh University. Self taught, his work is represented in private and public collections.

An accomplished photographer, Anderson creates compelling photographs for editorial and advertising clients. An astute artist, he combines his sensibility as a fine art photographer with the grit and determination of a photojournalist. Anderson has been called a lyrical poet of the commonplace.

Anderson resides in Eastern Pennsylvania and works on projects for himself and select clients.
