Dave Anderson is a fine art photographer based in Little Rock, Arkansas. Born to Quaker parents in East Lansing, Michigan, Dave studied history and film before entering the world of politics. He worked as a s staff member in the Clinton White House, went on to work as a producer at MTV, then worked for several years in the film industry. A chance sighting of a course catalogue from the International Center for Photography
led to classes and soon an all-consuming passion for photography. He resigned his job shortly thereafter and has been a photographer ever since.

2005 Project Competition. He was also named a rising star by Photo District News

His work can be found in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, the Worcester Art Museum, the Art Museum Southeast Texas, and the University of Louisville Photographic Archive among others.
