Biographical History

George E. Anderson learned the art of photography as a teenager while working as an apprentice to Charles R. Savage in Salt Lake City. At the age of 17 Anderson and his brothers started their own studio in Salt Lake City. Later Anderson moved to Springville, Utah where he set up a studio and lived out the rest of his life. He established a satellite studio in Manti, Utah, and also had a traveling tent studio which he took to most of the towns in central, southern and eastern Utah. His photographs were mostly portraits but are unique in that he often posed his subjects to depict their day-to-day life.
