Hi my name is Denisha Anderson and I am a multi-faceted creative from South London, with an aim to speak cultural truth across all platforms of my expression. I explore key themes of identity, race and gender which I then tie them into social documentary, fashion, music videos and portraiture photography.
Pushing narrative that informs and inspires.While working in film and photography I had the opportunity to work alongside Spike Lee, Daniel Mulloy and Joost Vandebrug. These experiences have helped develop my unique eye.My work is raw, intimate and challenging; empowering not only the individual but disrupting the pre-conceptions viewers may feel towards those I capture.Since becoming a full-time artist two years ago, my talent and determination has gained attention in recent exhibitions which include MAN at The V&A Museum, The Self Portrait at HOME Gallery and a nationwide billboard campaign with BuildHollywood for Record Store Day; and press coverage from Magneta Flash Forward Catalogue, The Huffington Post and WePresent.
In the world of music videos, Anderson has collaborated with artists such as Wu-Lu, Chrissi, Léa Sen and The Bug and garnered press coverage from the likes of David Reviews, LBBOnline, PromoNews & Shots; also being shortlisted earlier this year at Kinsale Shark Awards & at the up and coming Creative Circle Awards for her Wu-Lu "Broken Homes” video.
Followed a former monthly online radio residency at Balamii, followed by guest mixes on NTS, WorldwideFM & Reprezent radio.
I am available for worldwide commissions and collaborations within my specialisms of photography, video/editing & DJ'ing.
