Deborah Anderson brings together her achievements in every area of her creative body of work from over the past 16 years as a world renowned photographer, artist and art director
to delve into the world of documentary film making.
Deborah Anderson is best known for her work as a photographic and film artist with the release of three fine art books to date – “A photographer whose distinctive sensuality is located somewhere between classic French erotica and Helmut Newton” (Los Angeles Times)
Her work has graced the covers of albums and magazines, the walls of infamous hotels and private homes worldwide with an expansive A list clientele.
As art director for the renowned Gansevoort Hotel Group, her original art also appears throughout the property and showcases her first fine art book of sensual black and white
photography called ‘Paperthin’ (Verlhac) as the in-room featured coffee table book. For the Gansevoort Park Avenue location in Manhattan that opened in 2010 she shot the original
1960’s themed interior Artwork where this hotel features her second book Room 23 (daab) in all 249 guest rooms. For this coffee table book, Deborah photographed 100 celebrities including George Clooney, Cindy Crawford and Sharon Stone in a suite at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills. The book sold out worldwide and received critical acclaim.
Deborah’s first feature documentary film project entitled “Aroused”, a fine art book and feature documentary film featuring 16 world renowned female adult film stars was released in theaters and is currently featured on Showtime and Amazon in the US.
She has created short film pieces for various artists including award winning writer and activist Eve Ensler and her 1 Billion Rising organization featuring Rosario Dawson. Poet, Gina Loring, collaborated on the short film entitled “Walking Prayers” that went viral and was picked up by the New York Times. She is currently working with Eve Ensler on the new RISE 2020 campaign.
Deborah has spent the past two years working on a feature documentary film about the Native American Lakota women living on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota called Women Of The White Buffalo.
