David Anderson was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, in 1943 and was raised there. At age seventeen, he showed his photographic work to Alfred Einsenstaedt at Life Magazine, who encouraged him to begin his career at the New York Daily News. After serving in the U.S. Army as a cameraman, including duty in Vietnam, from 1969 to 1983 he was a cinematographer based in New York City who specialized in commercials and documentaries. He also photographed two independent films directed by artist Nancy Graves, including Isy Boukir (1971), which was acquired for the collection of films at the Museum of Modern Art. Since 1983 he has worked as an architectural photographer and is represented by the Yancey Richardson Gallery, of New York City. His photographs are in numerous public and corporate collections, including American Airlines, Amon Carter Museum of American Art, AT&T, the Brooklyn Museum, the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montréal, Citicorp, Deutsche Bank, Equitable Life Assurance Society, the Library of Congress, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, the Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia, the Museum of the City of New York, and the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, the Vassar College art center among others. After living in New York City for fifty years, Mr. Anderson moved in 2010 to the Hudson River valley of New York.
