Nadav Kander photographs “Titans of the Stage” for The New York Times Magazine

For a feature in a special London-centric issue of The New York Times Magazine, director of photography Kathy Ryan commissioned Nadav Kander to make portraits of esteemed British actors—Judi Dench, Patrick Stewart, Eileen Atkins, and Mark Rylance among them. Nadav worked both in studio and on location in London, and the shoots were produced by associate photo editor Clinton Cargill, who is based here in New York City, and associate photo editor Stacey Baker, who was in London for the first two shoots.

Here’s a look at “Titans of the Stage,” which was published in the magazine’s March 4 issue. Go here to see the complete portfolio at the Times site, which also features portraits of Vinette Robinson, Simon Russell Beale, and Bertie Carvel.
