200% Magazine Interviews Nadav Kander at ‘Unseen’ Photography Fair in Amsterdam

"Over a period of 2,5 years, seven naked sitters were depicted by Kander in his studio, resulting in a body of work consisting of 30 pictures. Flowers exhibited three pictures of women whose bodies are painted white with dust that comes from marble sculptures and photographed on a black background. As the models are turned away from the camera or their faces are hidden by their arms, the attention is focused entirely on the shape of the body. Some of the bodies become beautifully abstract, like 'Elizabeth with elbows hiding face' where her body appears to become the shape of dough being kneaded for bread....

Kander attended the 'Unseen' fair for an interview on stage and made time to sat with us to discuss his new body of work, and his interest to create images that are slightly difficult to view, but simultaneously quite beautiful.

200%: How did your new book 'Bodies. 6 Women. 1 Man' originate?

Nadav Kander: I have often photographed nudes, but I don't think I have ever been comfortable with what I have photographed as it's usually too erotically charged. They fall in a genre of photography that I don't really like or with which I would like to be associated. I have often pursued it, but I never found a way that I could photograph nude people that was satisfactory to me. I always loved the work of Lee Friedlander, André Kertész and Bill Brandt, particularly with their nude work, for their honesty and the way that they showed humanness in different ways without it being sexual."
