Peggy Anderson is a photographer based in New York and Sweden but currently living in Paris. She graduated from The International Center of Photography (ICP) one-year General Studies in Photography certificate program in 2013. Since then she has been pursuing various photography projects . Her signature project and book, ‘The Morning Dip”, was exhibited in Hostsalongen 2015 at Fotografiska . This on-going project is a portrait series of Swedes on the west coast of Sweden wearing bathrobes after their morning swim. Her next book, #subwayreaders, was published in 2016. This is a series of people reading books on the New York City subways. This series was also exhibited at Fotografiska in Stockholm the same year. Some of these images are now included in the collection of the Museum of the City of New York.
Peggy’s work often embraces ritual and typology. While not necessarily a portrait photographer, she finds herself drawn to photographing people both for the challenge and interaction.
Recently, Peggy completed two consecutive one-year photography workshops with Altelier Smedsby, run by JH Engstrom and Margot Wallard.
She is currently working on personal projects and commissions.
