‘Yangtze, The Long River’ by Nadav Kander

- - Photographers

Nadav Kander talks about his Prix Pictet award winning work from China:

They are just pictures, but pictures that cant be taken again. The Yangtze River, which forms the premise to this body of work, is the main artery that flows 4100 miles (6500km) across China, travelling from its furthest westerly point in Qinghai Providence to Shanghai in the East. In this installation, Nadav invites the visitors to reflect with him on his journey.

  1. Nadav seems to know what he is doing. A had dinner with him at the Santa Fe Workshops this Summer. Patient, eloquent, and engaged… a perfect mix.

  2. You might also like this book by Linda Butler called Yangtze Remembered. It was a huge inspiration to me when I was getting started. The print quality is nuts:

    It’s an excellent buy at $50. I learned so much from this book. She traveled around the area that was to be destroyed by the dam over a couple of years with a large format camera. Amazing portraits, landscapes, and the book tied together as a whole is really impressive.

  3. Thanks Rob…I doubt I would have seen this on my own.

    It’s invaluable to hear some of the thought process behind a project like this. I wonder what kind of photographer I would/could be if I were really able to keep in mind some broad theme while looking through the lens at a single facet of that idea?

  4. Another bland group of images; the photos are impressive because the places being photographed are impressive. Feels like commercial work, stock photography to be more specific.

  5. Brilliant work! This presentation of images easily gripped me for 10 minutes and inspires me in so many ways.
