Nadav Kander is recognized as one of the most original and highly regarded photographers of our time. His work forms part of the public collection at the National Portrait Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Kander’s most recent and highly acclaimed fine art photography project titled “Yangtze - The Long River” won the 2009 Prix Pictet. A monograph of the works in this series was recently published by Hatje Cantz (September 2010).
Other awards include the D&AD and the John Kobal Foundation in the UK; Epica in Europe; the Art Director’s Club and IPA in the USA and the Silver Photographer of the Year Award at Lianzhou International Photo Festival 2008 in China. He was also awarded the prestigious Royal Photographic Society’s ‘Terence Donovan’ Award in 2002 and was nominated for the Schweppes Photographic Portrait Prize in 2003.
His portraits of celebrities - from actors to world leaders - appear regularly in top publications such as The Sunday Times Magazine, New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, Time Magazine, Another Man, and Dazed & Confused. In 2009, The New York Times Magazine devoted an entire issue to “Obama’s People”, Kander’s 52 portraits of President Obama’s inaugural administration.
He is currently based in London.
