  • Nadav Kander
    Photographer

    Nadav Kander (b. 1961) was born in Israel and moved to Johannesburg, South Africa at the age of three.  He began photographing at an early age and moved to London in 1982 where he still lives with his wife and three children. In 2009 Kander was awarded the Prix Pictet for his Yangtze, The Long River series and was also named International Photographer of the Year at the 7th Annual Lucie Awards.  In 2012 Kander is exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery as part of their Road to 2012 project in which the National Portrait Gallery commissioned a series of portraits to celebrate London’s 2012 Olympics. His work appears regularly in many international publications and in early 2009, coinciding with Barack Obama’s Presidential Inauguration, Kander’s 52 full page portraits of Barack Obama and his closest colleagues, aides and advisors was the largest portfolio of work to date that has been published in one single issue of The New York Times Magazine.


    A new series of Nadav’s work Bodies. 6 Women, 1 Man, made over the last two years, is published as a monograph by Hatje Cantz during October 2012. Monographs include:  Beauty’s Nothing (2001) and Yangtze, The Long River (2010)
