Nadav Kander's work is a varied interplay of influences. His restrained and articulate compositions have a clarity and calm that draw the viewer into zen-like states. The London-based photographer's exceptional talent has been rewarded with major success, and his work is featured in the "Sunday Times Magazine", "Rolling Stone", and "Esquire" among other publications. His unique skill is especially manifest in his spare and muted landscapes and his straight portraits. "The Yangtze", The Long River" work was awarded the second Prix Pictet. His Obama's People feature - which he created for "The New York Times Magazine" in 2009 - have a haunting complexity few contemporary photographers could equal.
