Hi, my name is Denisha Anderson and I am a multi-faceted creative. I aim to speak cultural truth across all platforms of my expression; revealing the beauty in our shared human experiences.
Exploring key themes of identity, race and gender I ty them into social documentary, fashion and portraiture photography. Including editing and music, I want to push narrative that inform, inspire, look and sound amazing.
After years spent working in film and photography alongside Spike Lee, Daniel Mulloy and Joost Vandebrug these experiences have helped to inspire my unique eye to this day.
My work is raw, intimate and challenging. I empower not only the individual but I disrupt the pre-conceptions viewers may feel towards those I capture.
My craft has brought me to debut a long-term project MAN exploring learned gender roles and desire at the V&A 2018, a feature in Magenta Flash Forward catalogue 2017 and a self-published, limited-edition book; Bikes and Bridges. Most recently I exhibited at the “Mansized” residency in Hastings; in association with Coastal Currents, 2019. Followed by a monthly online radio residency at Balamii, followed by guest mixes on NTS and Reprezent radio.
I am available for worldwide commissions and collaborations within my specialisms of photography, video/editing & DJ'ing.
