Christopher Anderson has been shooting for the New York-based magazine for the past three years and will now work exclusively for it on a "broad array of subjects in a full range of styles, from photojournalism to portraiture to conceptual work," says the magazine in a statement sent to BJP.
Anderson is the first photographer to be hired "in residence" since the magazine's launch in April 1968.
"Anderson's work is well known to readers of New York-from already iconic news photography of the Occupy Wall Street protests last November, to a portrait gallery of combat photojournalists last May, to a stunning fashion portfolio for the special edition Look in 2008," it adds.
The official collaboration will start in this week's issue of New York with surveillance-style photos shot for the "Classifieds" cover story.
As part of the agreement, Anderson will be able to syndicate his images through Magnum Photos, which he joined in 2005, after an embargo period, the magazine confirms to BJP.
"We thought that we could be the ideal outlet for Chris to explore his painter's palette of image-making," says photography director Jody Quon. "Chris's commitment to journalism combined with his range of artistry makes him the perfect partner for the magazine."
The magazine's editor-in-chief adds: "I've had the pleasure of working with Chris for many years, and have been continuously blown away by his work. We created this new position to provide a showcase for his work and to deepen the magazine's commitment to original photography."
The length of Anderson's residency is indeterminate, the magazine confirms to BJP.
