Christopher Anderson was born in Canada and grew up in west Texas. He first gained recognition for his pictures in 1999 when he boarded a handmade, wooden boat with Haitian refugees trying to sail to America. The boat, named the Believe In God, sank in the Caribbean. In 2000 the images from that journey would receive the Robert Capa Gold Medal.

Christopher joined Magnum Photos in 2005, and is currently New York Magazine's first ever photographer-in-residence. He is the author of four monographs of photography and most recently coauthored a book with Derek Jeter that will be released in 2014.
