Nadav Kander - surface and surfacePhotographs from Nadav Kander’s series on the Yangtze River in China. The human scale to the river, landscape and new infrastructure is amazing. Along with winning the prix pictet award in 2009, Nadav Kander has easily the most entertaining biography I’ve read on any photographer’s website you can see it here along with many more impressive photographs.

  1. I’ve been having a nice look around different blogs tonight but these images are so startling. How will the Chinese ever restore their environment? – I truly hope they can really become a global example of reclamation.

      thanks for getting in contact. Currently reading Ai Wei Wei’s blog book and it’s really interesting getting his view on life and culture of the huge country

  2. Hi Mark – I thought a bit after posting this that successive generations managed to get London’s pollution under control and Melbourne put all its taxis and buses on LP gas about 20 years ago and that really improved the air quality over a short time – so we shouldn’t feel this will still be the picture in 10 years from now.

      Hey Chas, yeah it’s a pretty massive topic with a lot of contradicting views. China is the largest consumer of coal in the world and is still building Coal Power Stations where it gets 70% of its electricity and causes a huge amount of pollution. I spent 6 weeks traveling around China in 2006 which I would highly recommend. Judging from what I saw there even in terms of just vehicle emission standards they have a long way to go before becoming level with London 20 years ago but lets hope this isn’t the case.
