Camera Work in Berlin Exhibits the Photographs of Nadav Kander and Robert Polidori


BERLIN.- Camera Work exhibits “Yangtze – The Long River” by Nadav Kander and “Pripyat and Chernobyl“ by Robert Polidori, certainly two of the most impressive series of recent photographic history. The photographs of both artists are striking reminders of the impact of mankind’s intervention in its environment. Nadav Kander’s Photo Series, awarded with the prestigious Prix Pictet in 2009, uniquely documents the rapid structural change along the Chinese Yangtze River. A current catalogue, published by HATJE CANTZ, with a foreword by former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, accompanies the exhibition. Robert Polidori, on the other hand, belongs to the first photographers who in 2001 had access to the restricted zone of the Ukrainian industrial city of Pripyat and the nearby nuclear power station Chernobyl, with the nuclear accident having its 25th anniversary on April 26th, 2011.
