Yangtze, The Long River Nadav Kander (born in 1961 in Tel Aviv) created prolific and heterogeneous cycles of photographs since the end of the 1990s. Such miscellaneousness is nevertheless linked by recurrent themes and aesthetics, which are alienation, sadness, detachment, deserted places. His Yangtze series – which resulted from five trips initiated in 2006 – combine personal intuition and social commentary on the implacable urban development in China. His photographs propose a journey navigating by river, walking across broken bridges and ending in nearby cities almost emptied of people. He lives and works in London.
These vivid color photos taken during the Great Depression and World War II capture an era generally seen only in black-and-white. Photographers working for the United States Farm Security Administration (FSA) and later the Office of War Information (OWI) created the images between 1939 and 1944. The FSA/OWI pictures depict life in the United States, including Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, with a focus on rural areas and farm labor, as well as aspects of World War II mobilization, including factories, railroads, aviation training, and women working. The original images are color transparencies ranging in size from 35 mm to 4-by-5 inches. They complement the better-known black-and-white FSA/OWI photographs taken during the same period.
