A photo tweet a day: Nadav Kander


Bridge over troubled water ... Chongqing XI, 2007, Nadav Kander Yangtze - The Long River.

I wont lie anyone who knows me knows why i picked this image. Its the same structure design as the Runcorn Bridge in widnes where im from.

Kander‘s work documents the length of the Yangtze in china or the long River as it also know by locals. it is a phenomenal commitment to create a body of work of 4000miles. the dark side to the images is that it shows what a state the land of the rising sun is on. His work looks photoshopped with a yellow hue cast on most of the image sadly this is what id see the effects of pollution are. A selection of his body of work can be seen here

Hello! I get about a bit so here about me first. I am a visual artist and poet who works within the context of fine art. My work is grounded in documentary, exploring the inner beauty of everyday life through various lens based media. Notions of nostalgia and social commentary are present, but from a definite northern working class perspective. Instinctively I exploring the townscapes of North Wales and the North West, often producing work that reflects the every day minutiae of life.
