Simon Norfolk

Beirut; How did you come to smell of smoke and fire?
The first exhibition I saw of Simon Norfolk's work was entitled; For most of it I have no words. It was an incredibly moving exhibition. You can see the photographs from that exhibition and many others on his very comprehensive web site. The editorials are worth reading as well.
I think he is an immensely talented photographer, because he is able to convey the misery of conflict through such calm stillness.
