Nadav Kander talks about his “Obama’s People” Portraits

The photo blog Lens Culture has just posted a fabulous audio interview here, with photographer Nadav Kander. Kander discusses his intentions behind the hotly debated portfolio he shot at the end of 2008 of Obama’s People for the New York Times magazine. You can view the whole essay here. Some of my favorites below:


Rahm Emanuel: Chief of Staff


Euguene Kang: Special Assistant to the President


Joseph Biden: Vice President


Samantha Power: Advisor


Dennis McDonough: Senior Foreign Policy Aid


Ken Salazar: Interior Secretary
