Lens Culture Conversations with Photographers — Video Interview
British-based Nadav Kander was awarded the 2009 Prix Pictet for his series, Yangtze: The Long River.
This video interview was recorded for Lens Culture in Paris in 2010.
Kander has photographed the rapidly changing landscape and communities of China’s Yangtze River, from its mouth to source. More people live on the river’s 6500 km of banks than in America. However, China’s current program of development is also destroying the country’s heritage and displacing many of its people.
Kander is a regular contributor to many international publications, including The New York Times Magazine, for whom he recently documented Obama’s People. His many international awards and nominations include most recently the Silver Photographer of the Year Award at the Lianzhou International Photo Festival 08 in China.
Work from this series can be viewed in Lens Culture as a high-resolution slideshow, accompanied by a text written by the photographer.
