Nadav Kander photographs President Obama for the Sunday cover of the New York Times Magazine

Nadav Kander, who photographed the groundbreaking 51-portrait “Obama’s People” feature published in The New York Times Magazine earlier this year, made another appearance this Sunday. Kander photographed President Barack Obama for the cover of the magazine. It’s an intense portrait that captures both the gravity of the challenges the U.S. is facing, as well as the determination of the young president. The accompanying story, written by David Leonhardt, is titled “After the Great Recession.”

    This cover was shot in the Oval Office three weeks ago, so there’s no way you’ve seen this before.
