Ben Brody - 300m

Mass Books

Regular price $45.00

A surreal and kaleidoscopic tour of Afghanistan during the height of the American war, 300m is framed in the context of the chaotic 2021 military withdrawal and collapse of the Afghan government. Conceptualized with Brody’s longtime collaborator in Afghanistan, 300m is an innovative, tactile accordion book that invites multiple readings and interactions. The accordion can be paged through like a traditional photobook, viewed as a shifting tableau of 360-degree panoramics where the reader can create their own compositions, or displayed as a 15'8” long, two-sided print. Inside the poppy-red cover, a WhatsApp chat from Brody’s friend and interpreter in Afghanistan details his harrowing journey with his family to the gates of Kabul’s airport while a group of veterans in the US attempted to navigate them through the oceanic crowds in what came to be known as the ‘Digital Dunkirk.’ Published in a limited edition of 600 from Mass Books.
