Simon Norfolk

Norfolk is a documentary photographer; one of his main passions seems to be war photography. The last ten years has been spent looking at the term “battlefield.” My main interest is in his collaboration with John Burke’s photographs of Afghanistan in the nineteenth century. Norfolk returned to Afghanistan in 2010 to rephotograph the war scene. He updated the photographs Burke originally took by showing the modern day war. I think they are beautiful images, even in such a sad scene. He has his own site http://www.simonnorfolk.com/ and a linked site to the Norfolk + burke … http://www.simonnorfolk.com/burkenorfolk/
