Nadav Kander’s series, Yangtze: The Long River has won some of photography’s most prestigious awards, and next month it will make its debut in New York at Flowers Gallery.

Celebrated photographer Nadav Kander has taken portraits of everyone from President Obama to Ricky Gervais and has also turned his eye toward directing. Here he talks to Co.Create about the art of simplicity, authenticity, and leaving things unseen.
