National Portrait Gallery - Road to 2012

For the final Road to 2012 exhibition Kander was invited to make two series of portraits. His compelling images of four talented young athletes for Rising Stars reference the iconic black and white portraits of the 1940s and ‘50s. Using dramatic lighting, and the interplay of highlights and dense rich shadows he reveals the vulnerability he observed in his sitters.

Torch bearers by Nadav Kander were displayed in room 35 at the National Portrait Gallery, London.
