Will Anderson came to America at the age of twenty-five to follow a career in graphic design with no idea that he would be working as a male fashion model a year later. After living in several different agency accommodations he eventually found himself senior resident and de facto handyman of a hostel-style apartment provided by one of the world’s most prestigious modeling agencies. Over a period of six years he lived with more than two hundred and fifty young emerging male models, each aspiring to become one of the few highly paid icons that adorn the world’s fashion magazines, billboards and couture catwalks. During this time Will Anderson produced a body of photographs of life in the various apartments. He has used some of these photographs in his book Apt.301, to represent typical aspects of the transient environment in which young male models start their careers’
