Studio Visit with Photographer Peter Anderson


It’s Nice That recently paid photographer Peter Anderson a visit at his studio in London. Known for his use of available light in black-and-white film, Anderson produced some of the most iconic portraits to line the pages of NME Magazine in the ‘70s and ‘80s. Shooting everyone from Ian Curtis and Paul Weller to Madonna and Run DMC, he approached his subject with the sensibilities of street photography to capture an expressive spontaneity on their part. In the feature, Anderson recalls his start in music photography, travelling and shooting before the adven of cellphones and butting with record labels to photograph artists how they want to be. Take a closer look at his process and his studio here.
