Pre-order and signing session: Afghan Style by Robert Spangle
A cultural and sartorial insight into the Afghan world
Marine-turned-fashion-photographer Robert Spangle is creating a fresh understanding of Afghan culture with ‘Afghan Style’. In his quasi-encyclopedic work – at the crossroads of photo reportage and fashion – he analyses the style, silhouettes, colors, materials and accessories of Afghan men. Sold exclusively in the Netherlands through MENDO, now available for pre-order.
On January 26, Robert will visit MENDO for an exclusive signing session to celebrate the launch of his debut book. Stop by to meet him in person and have your copy signed.
Date: Thursday 26th of January
Time: 04:00PM – 06:00PM
Location: MENDO, De L’Europe
Now available for pre-order: Afghan Style
Through ‘Afghan Style’, Robert seeks to represent the Afghans cultural style and character outside the context of conflict and poverty. His portraits of Afghans and Afghan landscapes were taken in the districts of Paktika and Helmand and in Kabul.
Afghan Style is printed on 150g Symbol Tatami paper in France by Escourbiac and limited to 1600 copies. Created by Edition Odyssée, a publisher that prides itself on creating artistically-crafted books with evocative photography since 1992.
‘Afghan men, through self-possession, pride, character, sophistication, and nuance, are the most stylish on earth’
