"Schoolgirl (white photographer), Northern Transvaal (now Limpopo Province), South Africa" (1991) is reproduced from

In 'Nadav Kander: The Meeting,' something more than just this moment

"Schoolgirl (white photographer), Northern Transvaal (now Limpopo Province), South Africa" (1991) is reproduced from Tel-Aviv-born, London-based photographer Nadav Kander's epic new 324-page clothbound Steidl monograph, The Meeting. Exquisitely printed on the most beautiful matte paper, this volume spans Kander's entire career in portraiture. "A portrait is one way of looking at some facets of our condition," Kander is quoted in conversation with David Campany. "There's a precious and beautiful flicker of understanding, or the opposite, that shows itself for short periods and disappears. These periods, which I must see and try to photograph, are often responses to the light or the atmosphere that the light imbues. I must try to recognize them as an image that has what I love: depth of feeling, vulnerability and poise, pride and soul, a recognition of something more than just this moment now. Little of this is clear to me, but this is the best I can do to explain it."
