Alissa Anderson has heavily documented the contemporary San Francisco music scene with her images gracing the records of Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsom and The Coachwhips. Also a member of the band Vetiver for the past 5 years, her photographs are featured in their new record “To Find Me Gone.” Anderson’s portraits of musicians have been published in RES, SOMA, XLR8R, and SPIN. Triple Base Gallery will feature Alissa Anderson’s portrait photography, spanning her entire career. This will be Anderson’s most comprehensive show to date, including a limited edition publication of photographs and essays that will be available for signing on opening night.

The multi-talented artist also produces a line of recycled clothing and accessories called “m i t t e n m a k e r” that has been included in exhibitions at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and California College of the Arts, local fashion shows, sample sales, and boutiques. In 2005, Alissa was featured as a “Style Icon” in Venus magazine. Alissa Anderson’s photography has been shown in venues including Adobe Books, Blackbird Space, and New Langton Arts in San Francisco; New Image Art in LA; and Andrew Kreps Gallery in New York.
