Nadav Kander: The Meeting

Text by Ian McEwan, Nadav Kander, David Campany. Conversation with David Lynch.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Nadav Kander: The Meeting.'

"It's no mystery why he is regularly hired by the New York Times Magazine … Kander strives to reveal something in his subjects that has not been seen before, and to humanize rather than flatter or ingratiate." –Los Angeles Review of Books

Regardless of his sitter—whether family member or influential celebrity—the portraiture of London-based photographer Nadav Kander (born 1961) shows what makes that particular individual human. His aim is to move beyond capturing an accurate likeness—to access the emotions within, the uncertainty, the shadow as much as the light, the complex sense of self that otherwise lays hidden. “Revealed and concealed, beauty and destruction, ease and disease, shame and shameless,” explains Kander, “These paradoxes are essential to all my work and represent what is common to all my varied subject matter.” This collection, the first book dedicated to his portraiture, shows the range and nuance of Kander’s work. His enigmatic depictions of actors, artists, musicians, authors, sports icons and political leaders—from Barack Obama, John le Carré and Alexander McQueen to Tracey Emin, Robert Plant and Prince Charles—are layered and penetrating, revealing unexpected moments of reverie and vulnerability.

Born in 1961, Nadav Kander lives and works in London. His work is held in collections including the National Portrait Gallery, London; the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago; and the Statoil Collection, Norway. His exhibitions include those at the Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego; the Museum of Applied Arts, Cologne; and Somerset House, London.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

It's Nice That

Matt Alagiah

Many people will know Kander for his Prix Pictet-winning series Yangtze – The Long River... But, ["The Meeting"] proves, his portraits are just as remarkable as his epic landscapes and documentary series.

Eugene Weekly

Todd Cooper

Nadav Kander’s photographs read like no others. The viewer has no choice but to feel and imagine.

Guardian

Tim Adams

[Kander's] ambition is always to “make a portrait that stirs a viewer [to] ...[bring] their own story or state of mind to the picture." Many of the portraits in the book, bodies emerging out of blackness, famous faces juxtaposed with unknown subjects in rural South Africa, make just this kind of earnest demand.

Art Daily News

Kander's capacity to transform human encounters into outstanding portraits is showcased for the first time in The Meeting. A unique testament to the diversity and nuance of this extraordinary photographer’s work its images are layered and penetrating, revealing unexpected moments of reverie and vulnerability, inviting us into Kander's innate ability to access the complex sense of self that otherwise lays hidden.

Guardian

Nadav Kander is one of the most influential photographers in the world, and a new book – The Meeting... – documents hundreds of his portraits taken over three decades. His subjects are unpredictable, from global celebrities to London market traders and South African schoolchildren.

Dossier

Mia Ziervogel

With his minimal and intuitive approach, Kander shows his interest in universal experience, which transcends the specificity of public persona or status. His enigmatic depictions of actors, artists, musicians, authors, sports icons and political leaders...are layered and penetrating, revealing unexpected moments of reverie and vulnerability.

Washington Post

Kenneth Dickerman

Whether [Nadav Kander] is photographing the president of the United States, the frontman of Radiohead or the daily life of people dwelling along the banks of the Yangtze, the results are never merely descriptive. They all reflect his authorial voice, transcending mere representation of people or places to involve the viewer in the interpretive process.

Elephant

Emily Gosling

Nadav Kander's photography is exemplary in the often staid world of celebrity portraiture, revealing more in a single image than most manage in an entire career.

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

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." continue to blog
