From Photography to Film

Deborah Anderson is the daughter of singer Jon Anderson and Jennifer Anderson (née Baker), and sister to singer Jade Anderson. On the 1983 Jon & Vangelis album Private Collection, Jon wrote the lyrics and sang “Deborah”, a song dedicated to his daughter. Deborah’s earliest musical work was on projects with her father: including backing vocals on Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe (1989), the 1993 Latin American Jon Anderson solo tour, Deseo (1994), Angels Embrace (1995) and Toltec (1996). She was educated at Roedean School in Brighton. Anderson has been described as “a photographer whose distinctive sensuality is located somewhere between classic French erotica and Helmut Newton”. Her resume includes being art director for The Gansevoort Hotel group, campaign images for Pink’s albums: I’m Not Dead, Funhouse and The Truth About Love, and brand-changing campaign images for Bebe Stores. Anderson has had her images published worldwide in such magazines as Elle, GQ, Cosmopolitan, Architectural Digest, Hello, Harper’s Bazaar, FHM, Playboy, VOGUE and Vanity Fair to name but a few. The Aroused project is a feature documentary film capturing the making of a fine art book by Deborah Anderson. The book features sixteen of the worlds most successful adult film stars wearing nothing but a pair of neon Jimmy Choo shoes.
