Thorne Anderson joined the Mayborn School of Journalism at the University of North Texas as an Assistant Professor in fall 2009. He is a specialist in photojournalism, visual communication, and multimedia storytelling. He has worked internationally as a freelance photojournalist for numerous publications including the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, and Time, Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report, and Stern magazines. He is a co-author/photographer of Unembedded: Four Independent Photojournalists on the War in Iraq.
He believes it is important for photographers to challenge themselves and their audiences, to immerse themselves in the lives of their subjects, to see beyond the obvious, to extract the extraordinary from the mundane, and to reveal the sacred in the profane.
He also loves late night jam sessions.
