‘Stop Tanks With Books’: A Discussion With Mark Neville
Please join the NIOD ImageLab on April 14 at 4PM (GMT+2) for a discussion with photographer Mark Neville about his book, ‘Stop Tanks With Books’. This discussion is the first in the History’s Darkroom Discussion Series organized by NIOD Image Lab.
Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2020 shortlisted British artist Mark Neville moved home and studio from London to live in Kyiv, Ukraine, in 2020. He made his book project ‘Stop Tanks With Books’ before the war started in an attempt to galvanise Western support for Ukraine’s fight for independence. In a targeted dissemination, 750 copies of the book were sent out to politicians, diplomats, celebrities – everyone he felt could help prevent the war and deter Russian aggression. Amongst other things he prophetically urged for a fast-track membership for Ukraine of NATO and EU.
