Taken from his series of photographs of the American landscape and suburbs entitled 'God's Country', 'Monument, Utah, USA, 1995' touches on a theme central to Kander's work ' the impact of human presence on our surrounding environment. The scale of the image seems somehow improbable, the ant-like human figure impossibly tiny in the vast desert scene, dwarfed by a crumbling and obscure monument. There is a certain distance in Kander's photographs which confounds a normal sense of scale or depth, and which creates a sense of the surreal. The dreamy coloration of the image heightens its strangeness - the blushing pink skies and pale blue snow could perhaps be an image of a different planet entirely. Contemplative and evocative, 'Monument, Utah, USA, 1995' is a transporting artwork with existential reverberations.
Whether the subject is a sweeping landscape or a pensive portrait of the President of the United States, Nadav Kander's photographs are imbued by his distinctive atmosphere of poignant consideration and a kind of concentrated reflection. Kander received the prestigious Prix Pictet Prize in 2009 and was named International Photographer of the Year at the 7th Annual Lucie Awards in 2009.
