Ben Brody is Director of Photography for GroundTruth and Report for America, providing training and mentorship for corps members and editing for visual fellowships. Brody spent most of his career photographing the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, first as a soldier, and later as a civilian working on The GroundTruth Project's landmark multimedia project Foreverstan. He holds an MFA in photography from Hartford Art School and is the author of the critically-acclaimed photobook Attention Servicemember. Brody lives in Massachusetts' Pioneer Valley and can often be found foraging for wild mushrooms, mildly scorched from a homemade electric motorcycle mishap or repairing one of his many anachronistic cameras.
