Howard Greenberg Gallery presents the exhibition, Nadav Kander: The Thread, the Prix Pictet-winning photographer’s first exhibition with the gallery, will present evocative landscapes and penetrating portraits from the 1990s-2020s that evoke the interconnectedness of humanity. The exhibition title, inspired by the poem “The Way It Is” by William Stafford, refers to this common thread.
“This connectivity is the only way we can come together as a species,” Kander noted. “My approach is to drill down to the essence of things, searching for feelings of vulnerability, quiet, and beauty, whether it be a familiar face or a riverscape.” Widely regarded as one of the most insightful photographers of our time, Kander’s work brings out the essence of his subjects in both subtle and powerful ways that resonate in the viewer’s mind.
For his landscapes, Kander has traveled extensively around the globe including the Yangtze River in China, the Arctic Circle, the salt flats of Utah, and Chernobyl. Three works from Kander’s series Yangtze — The Long River, 2006-2007 will be on view. The project was awarded the prestigious Prix Pictet in 2009. For this body of work, Kander travelled the nearly 4,000-mile-long Yangtze River, from mouth to source, photographing the landscape and the people living along its shores. Yangtze — The Long River is a body of work that captures the dramatic effects of a nation at the precipice of enormous industrial and economic change and considers the history and folklore of the waterway that runs through the blood of the people.
