Lost in Transition with Kadir van Lohuizen

Kadir van Lohuizen
Kadir van Lohuizen (The Netherlands, 1963) has covered conflicts in Africa and elsewhere, but is probably best known for his long-term projects on the seven rivers of the world, the rising of sea levels, the diamond industry and migration in the Americas. He started to work as a professional freelance photojournalist in 1988 covering the Intifada. In the years following, he worked in many conflict areas in Africa, such as Angola, Sierra Leone, Mozambique, Liberia and the DR of Congo. From 1990 to 1994 he covered the transition in South Africa from apartheid to democracy.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Kadir covered social issues in different corners of the former empire. In 1997 he embarked on a big project to travel along the seven rivers of the world, from source to mouth, covering daily life along these lifelines. The project resulted in the book “Rivers” and “Aderen” (Mets & Schilt). Kadir has received numerous prizes and awards in photojournalism. In 2000 and 2002 Kadir was both a jury member of the World Press Photo contest and on the supervisory board of the World Press Photo foundation. From 2011 to 2012, Kadir created Via PanAm; a visual investigation on migration in the Americas.

Kadir’s environmental projects continue with ‘Wasteland’, where investigates in six megacities (Jakarta, Tokyo, Lagos, Amsterdam, São Paulo and New York) how they manage or mismanage their waste. For this project he uses photography, video, drone footage and audio. For this project he received 1st World Press Photo Prize in the Environmental category. In 2018, Kadir van Lohuizen and Yuri Kozyrev were the laureates of the 9th Prix Carmignac for Photojournalism, where they undertook a year long expedition through the Arctic, documenting the consequences of the climate crisis.

Please note that the discussion will be in Dutch.
