Has Nadav Kander made the switch from highly successful commercial photographer to lets say for argument sakes fine art photographer?
I was an avid fan of his early work.
Others like Albert Watson, Irving Penn and Richard Avedon come to my mind, when I think of photographers who have made the switch, Lillian Bass and probably a fantastic
list of photographers whose work just is damm good and received as great photography.
Ed Burtynsky does not immediately strike me as following a commercial then fine art route., as he always has followed a very structured path , starting in Mass with the quarry work. I consider his work damm good as well , just a different path than Nadav Kander for example.
