Christopher Anderson began photographing New YorkCity cops in the wake of 9/11, as the visual landscape of the city he called home began to change. Bomb blast barriers went up, cops carrying larger guns seemed to be everywhere, and whilst the increased presence of security was designed, in part, to make New Yorkers feel safe, it reminded Anderson that something was deeply wrong.Then, in the wake of Occupy Wall Street, the death ofEric Garner and the election of Trump, Anderson found himself making photographs of cops on the streets ofNew York City once again, as a form of unconscious protest on a larger sense of authority. On assessing the images he was making, Anderson began to see them as something entirely different than a protest or commentary on power - there was almost a sentimentality.
“I saw a portrait of a working class, immigrant America.The uniform only served as a thread on which to hang a cross section sample. The photographs felt more like a love letter to New York” - Christopher Anderson
