Nadav started taking photos at 13 with a Pentax camera he bought with money from his Bar Mitzvah. That year he took a photo of a swimmer at school and was encouraged to continue when his class liked the picture. Next he photographed his girlfriend. Since then he’s gone on to be regarded for his portraitures, including: Barack Obama, Bill Gates, Desmond Tutu, David Lynch, MIA, Brad Pitt, Es Devlin, and Nick Cave among others. His landscape photography is revered and his seminal work “Yangtze- The Long River” won him photography’s most prestigious award, The Prix Pictet. Nadav is always in search of simple ways to express the human condition which he explores both as a director and photographer. The “No More" campaign for the NFL, which
premiered on the Super Bowl to over 100 million people helped spark a national conversation about protection for victims of domestic violence. Growing up in South Africa Apartheid was everywhere around him and that dangerous environment found its way into Nadav’s work. He embraced his role as an outsider and explored the edges and peripheries of society. He enjoys the paradox where something mundane is photographed beautifully, or something beautiful is photographed mundanely, or as he puts it, “There’s always a bit of mustard on the chocolate cake.” When he’s not in his London studio Nadav is out riding on his Pegoretti, or cooking dinner for his family.
