“Yangtze, The Long River” by Nadav KanderPhotography // Thursday, 06 Mar 2014
Nadav Kander is an Israeli photographer who is internationally renowned for his unique landscapes. In his book “Yangtze, The Long River” he spent three years winding along the banks of this enormous body of water for his project. The book starts out with a bold fact that the population living along its banks is much greater than the population of the United States at around 450 million people. The documents portray this reality: people timidly standing on a rock debating if they should enter the potentially toxic water, massive architectural projects, and inhabitants performing everyday activities. These images diversely show many aspects of a highly industrial nation, and its interaction with nature.
