Photographer #105: Simon Norfolk

Simon Norfolk, Great-Britain, 1963, focuses on war and all the consequences that come from it. Instead of showing us the horrors in bloody manors, he chooses to make stunning photographs that look at the aftermaths, the belongings people have lost and the technology behind the wars. In his series Archaeological Teasures from the Tigris Valley he performed excavations at battlefield sites and photographed the objects found in an improvised studio on site. The following images come from the series Afghanistan: Chronotopia, Archaeological Treasures from the Tigris Valley and The LHC: The Spirit of Enquiry.
