Kadir van Lohuizen

Kadir van Lohuizen (b. 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, rising sea levels, the diamond industry and migration in the Americas.

With the project Where Will We Go, Kadir looked at the global consequences of rising sea levels caused by climate change. The project is designed to highlight both the immense complexities associated with in-island and inter-island/country movements, and the human rights implications involved in such displacements.

Kadir is a frequent lecturer and photography teacher and is based in Amsterdam. He is a co-founder of NOOR and is part of the supervisory board of World Press Photo.
