On the road again...

Bob Anderson grew up in Glasgow, Scotland where he spent more time at Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery than on the football pitch.  At the tender age of 19, seeing little prospect in continuing to sell gentleman's undergarments for a living, he headed south and attended art school where he learned about graphic design and photography. Three years later armed with a new diploma, a reasonable portfolio, a dashing silk scarf, and a Nikon he managed to secure a job as an assistant to a BIG name London photographer where among other things, he developed a taste for nice things and good wine. He returned to Scotland in the early 70's to shoot for the Scottish Opera Company and other Arts organizations,for a few years before catching a boat to Canada to seek his fortune in the New World.  One thing led to another and before too long he was making a living shooting pictures, working with magazines, corporations and advertising agencies.  Somehow along the way he didn't sell his soul. Today he likes to spend his time between Vancouver Island, British Columbia and the high desert of Marfa, Texas.

His photographs are in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Canada, Library and Archives Canada, and numerous private collections.
