Nadav Kander (born in 1961 in Tel Aviv) created prolific and heterogeneous cycles of photographs since the end of the 1990s. Such miscellaneousness is nevertheless linked by recurrent themes and aesthetics, such as alienation, sadness, detachment, deserted places.
His Yangtze series – which resulted from five trips initiated in 2006 – combines personal intuition and social commentary on the implacable urban development in China. His photographs propose a journey navigating by river, walking across broken bridges and ending in nearby cities almost emptied of people.
