The CR podcast episode 22: photographer Nadav Kander

As Nadav Kander prepares to pick up the Outstanding Contribution gong at the 2019 Sony World Photography Awards later this month, we talk to him about his life in photography

Nadav Kander is renowned for creating exquisite photography that crosses the boundaries of fine art, portraiture and advertising, while maintaining his distinctive style throughout.

In this episode of the CR Podcast, CR Editor Eliza Williams talks to Kander about how he feels about picking up the equivalent of a ‘lifetime achievement’ award, why putting your subjects at ease isn’t what we should be striving for in portraiture, and what it was like to photograph Donald Trump for Time Magazine.
