In recent years, photographer and filmmaker Kadir van Lohuizen (1963) documented the global food industry. He has worked as a photojournalist for national and international media for decades already and has won several awards. The National Maritime Museum previously worked with Kadir van Lohuizen in 2019 for the exhibition Rising Tide.

As a photographer, Kadir van Lohuizen (Netherlands, 1963) is well equipped in many fields. In recent years, Kadir conducted extensive research on the global food industry. At the beginning of this research, he recorded the entire Dutch food chain: from the development of high-tech modified seeds to the Edammer-cheese for export. For Food for Thought, he looked beyond the Netherlands and went all over the world: from Kenya to China and from the United States to the Middle East.

In 2019 and 2020, the National Maritime Museum previously presented an exhibition with Kadir: Rising Tide. This exhibition used immersive photography to portray the global impact of rising sea levels.

Kadir has also documented various conflicts in Africa and elsewhere around the world, but he is probably best known for his long-running projects on the seven world rivers, the consequences of rising sea levels, the diamond industry, migration in North and South America and the (poor) ways in which six mega cities deal with waste.

His photo series on trash in world cities won him a World Press Photo Award in 2018. He also won the Silver Camera in 1994, 1997 and 2001.

Kadir has won many prizes and awards in photojournalism and is co-founder of NOOR Images. In 2000 and 2002, he was a member of the jury in the World Press Photo competition, and until recently he was a member of the World Press Photo Foundation's Supervisory Board. Kadir frequently gives lectures, is a photography teacher and lives in Amsterdam.
