Please join the NIOD ImageLab for an online discussion with photographer Mark Neville about the war in Ukraine and his new book, Stop Tanks With Books.

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.

The talk will take place online on the 14th of April at 4pm CEST.
