The 11 November 2018, marked a century since the end of the First World War. Over the past couple of years I’ve been working on a project studying its aftermath, including photographing the military cemeteries of Northern France. Here a photograph of Point 110 new Military Cemetery near Fricourt in the Somme. The Cemetery is about 1 kilometre south of Fricourt on a track running between the roads from Fricourt and Mametz to Bray. Both the new and the old cemeteries are near the side of the track, the old being 230 metres north of the new. The New cemetery contains 64 Commonwealth burials of the First World War and is named after it’s mapping contour.

Another image from my trip to Iran a few years back for National Geographic… Constructed between 1599 and 1602 The Allahverdi Khan Bridge (Persian: پل الله‌وردی‌خان‎), popularly known as Si-o-se-pol (Persian: سی‌وسه‌پل‎, literally, ‘bridge of thirty-three [spans]’) is one of 11 bridges in Isfahan, Iran. It is the longest bridge on the Zayanderud, with a total length of almost 300m (977ft), and is one of the most famous examples of Safavid bridge design. Isfahan was once one of the largest cities in the world, flourishing from 1050 to 1722, particularly in the 16th & 17th centuries during the Safavid dynasty, when it became the capital of Persia for the second time in its history. Even today, the city retains much of its past glory. It is famous for its Persian–Islamic architecture, with many beautiful palaces, boulevards, mosques, minarets and bridges. This led to the Persian proverb “Esfahān nesf-e- jahān ast” (Isfahan is half of the world). • The Zayandeh River used to have significant flow throughout the year, unlike many of Iran’s rivers which are seasonal, but today runs dry due to water extraction before reaching Isfahan. In the early 2010s, the lower reaches of the river dried out completely after successive dry-outs. • Follow @simonnorfolkstudio for updates, outtakes, unpublished and archive material. • @simonnorfolkstudio @natgeo #documentaryphotography #simonnorfolk #Isfahan #Esfahan #iran #Persian #Persianempire #Safavid #heritage #worldheritage #worldheritagesite #simonnorfolkstudio #documentary #igtravel #visualarchitects #lighting #dusk #AllahverdiKhan #Shahanshah

This sublime architectural marvel, Grundtvig’s Church, is located in the Bispebjerg district of Copenhagen, Denmark. It is a rare example of expressionist church architecture, built in honour of the influential 19th century Danish philosopher, historian, minister, poet and reformer N.F.S. Grundtvig. The superior might of the church’s eye-watering construction was the combined effort of three generations of Danish architects and designers from a single family. Initiated by Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint, construction began in 1921, but after his death in 1930 his son, famed architect and designer Kaare Klint, was entrusted with the task, and later, Kaare’s son, Esben Klint, joined the project. The church was finally completed in 1940. The design is meant to be a synthesis of numerous building styles, merging the scale of Gothic vertical architecture with geometric expressionism and traditional Danish vernacular. More than 6 million bricks form a serene, minimalist look, juxtaposed with a soaring facade that evokes the shape of a church organ.

With climate change standing as one of the most pressing issues facing our future, photography is being increasingly used as a catalyst to create the positive reaction required to instigate change. I just returned from a trip to Switzerland with Klaus Thymann of @projectpressure to photograph the Rhône Glacier in southern Switzerland, which is disappearing at a colossal rate. Because there is a small shop there that carves an ice grotto into the glacier and charges tourists to experience inside the blue ice, it has been worth their money attempting to slow the glacier’s retreat. They have invested heavily in a special thermal blanket that has kept about 25m (82ft, in depth) of ice from disappearing, and has kept the ice grotto intact. However, after a few harsh winters on the mountain, the blanket is starting to disintegrate. And unfortunately the method is not scaleable: we cannot do this to all the world’s ice; the gesture is as forlorn and doomed as the glacier itself. So with heavy lament, this glacier, which has existed for millennia,will die within the lifetime of children born today. • This image will appear as part of a series at UNSEEN ( @unseenplatform) in Amsterdam, 21-23 September 2018. • Image: Shroud, Rhône Glacier, Switzerland, 2018 by Norfolk + Thymann • Follow me @simonnorfolkstudio for updates, outtakes, unpublished and archive material on this and future projects @simonnorfolkstudio @projectpressure @klausthymann @unseenplatform #photojournalism #documentaryphotography #simonnorfolk #rhoneglacier #Switzerland #shroud #climatechange #change #glaciers #globalwarming #pyrographs #greenpeace #savetheplanet #lowlight #light #spectral #death #sepulchral #shroud #haunting #apocalypse #ice #icemelt #icegrotto #projectpressure #alps #swissalps

Sasso Barisano, The City of Matera, Basilicata, Italy. Known as “la Città Sotterranea” (the Subterranean City), the city is centred on the “Sassi di Matera” (meaning “The Stones of Matera”). The Sassi originate from a prehistoric troglodyte settlement, and are suspected to be some of the first human settlements in Italy, Indeed, Matera is the only place in the world where people can boast to be still living in the same houses of their ancestors of 9,000 years ago. Miserably poor throughout the centuries, and a burden on the national psyche, the Sassi were forcibly cleared in the 1950s, but in recent years have seen the return of tourists, boutique hotels and Hollywood film crews. Matera is European Capital of Culture for 2019.

11 November 2018, marked a century since the end of the First World War. Over the past couple of years I’ve been working on a project about the aftermath of the War. • Architectural detail along the colonnades. The Pozieres memorial in the Somme relates to the period of crisis in March/April 1918 when the Allied 5th Army was driven back by overwhelming numbers across the former Somme battlefields, and the months that followed before the final advances of the war. The Memorial commemorates almost 15,000 casualties of the UK and 300 of the South African Forces who have no known grave and who died on the Somme during this period. The cemetery and memorial were designed by W.H. Cowlishaw, with sculpture by Laurence A. Turner. • Follow me @simonnorfolkstudio for updates, outtakes, unpublished and archive material on this and future projects. • @michaelhoppengallery @benrubi_gallery @galleryluisotti @simonnorfolkstudio #photojournalism #documentaryphotography #simonnorfolk #occupiedfrance #history #war #memorial #warfare #firstworldwar #1918 #memory #WW1 #somme #trenches @11_11_11_01 #armistice #peace #cemetery #LestWeForget #pozieres

Stop the clock! It’s mid-June and the search for 2018’s weirdest museum goes to the Flaske Peter Museum on the Danish island of Ærø. After several rooms of the zenith of ship-in-a-bottle art from the late, great Peter Jacobsen, king of the ship in a bottle and a personal hero of mine, we move on to an exhibit of 1950’s Baltic island hospital equipment. The highlight for me was the display of speculum, proctorscope and urethrascope shown off by wonderful carved-wood bottoms and genitals. The penile clamp at the end looks like a moose wearing headphones. I was profoundly moved.

November 11, 2018, marked a century since the end of the First World War. Over the past couple of years I've been working on a project studying its aftermath. Here stands the Chattri memorial on the outskirts of Brighton on the south coast of England. More than 800,000 Indian soldiers fought in the war, and thousands of wounded were brought to Britain to be treated in makeshift hospitals. Three were established in Brighton. The memorial was built in 1920 at the exact location of funeral pyres used for the cremation of soldiers who died in Brighton as a result of their injuries.

Foto de @ simonnorfolkstudio | A cidade de Matera, Basilicata, Itália. Conhecida como "la Città Sotterranea" (a Cidade Subterrânea), a cidade é centrada no "Sassi di Matera" (que significa "As Pedras de Matera"). Os Sassi são originários de um assentamento troglodita pré-histórico, e são suspeitos de serem alguns dos primeiros assentamentos humanos na Itália. De fato, Matera é o único lugar no mundo onde as pessoas podem se gabar de estarem vivendo nas mesmas casas de seus ancestrais de 9.000. anos atrás. Miserably pobres ao longo dos séculos e um fardo sobre a psique nacional, os Sassi foram forçosamente limpos nos anos 50, mas nos últimos anos viram o retorno de turistas, hotéis de boutique e equipes de filme de Hollywood. Matera é candidata à Capital Europeia da Cultura em 2019.

Currently in Slovakia adding finishing touches to a show in Bratislava… 28TH MONTH OF PHOTOGRAPHY BRATISLAVA Along with the exhibition, entitled The Chaos and the Calm, I’m delighted to have been invited to present a 4-day intensive, practice-orientated photography masterclass. The Course will be held in Bratislava from 15-18 November and will include practical photography sessions throughout the city… • Date:15 – 18.11. 2018 Venue: Central European House of Photography, Prepoštská 4, Bratislava, Slovakia Number of Participants:12 (min. 8, max 12) Price:350 euros Registration:Lucia Matejovičová, +421 905 127 185, matejovicova @sedf.sk (The Workshop will be given in English) • “I’d like to go out looking for some light. This is what I do when I’m working, so I think it might be useful for photographers to come with me and see it in practice. As a landscape photographer, light is not the story, but it is the most important part of the story-telling. Finding light is what I spend most of my time on when I’m in the field. For photographers, learning to think about light divides three ways: you need to see the need for it, know how to find it, and know how to capture it”. • For more information about the workshop: https://www.sedf.sk/en/month-of-photography-master-class-with-simon-norfolk @simonnorfolkstudio #photojournalism #documentaryphotography #simonnorfolk #talk #masterclass #bratislava #slovakia #thechaosandthecalm #exhibition #photography #exclusive #theartofphotography #centraleuropeanhouseofphotography #stredoeuropsky-dom-fotografie • Join me between 15-18 November 2018 in Bratislava, Slovakia. Spaces are STRICTLY LIMITED

👑 به مناسبت روز #کوروش بزرگ بنیانگذار #امپراطوری #هخامنشیان اولین امپراطوری بزرگ جهان #Repost @natgeo ( @get_repost) ・・・ Photograph by @simonnorfolkstudio On this day (29th October) 539 BCE the Persian king Cyrus II walked triumphantly into Babylon, the ancient Mesopotamian capital and seat of a huge empire that straddled the middle east. Iranian communities around the world mark this day as “Cyrus the Great Day” or “Cyrus Day”, روز کوروش کبیر October 29 (7th of Aban آبان) After taking Babylon, Cyrus proclaimed himself "King of Babylon... king of the four corners of the world" in the famous Cyrus Cylinder. The text of the cylinder portrays the victorious Cyrus addressing the Babylonian god Marduk, and how Cyrus had improved the lives of Babylonians, repatriated displaced peoples, and restored cult sanctuaries and temples. Some assert that the cylinder represents a form of human rights charter, whilst other historians place it in the context of a long-standing Mesopotamian tradition of new rulers beginning their reigns with declarations of reforms. Cyrus the Great's dominions comprised the largest empire the world had ever seen. These 2 images: a photograph of The tomb of Cyrus the Great, founder of the Achaemenid Empire, at Pasargadae; and detail of bas relief at the Archaemenid city of Persepolis.

I was fortunate to travel to Socotra not just once, but twice. Here photographed, the astonishing white sand beach at Detwah Lagoon near Qalansia (or Qalansiyah). Socotra … Territorially part of Yemen, Socotra (Arabic: سُقُطْرَى‎ Suquṭra), is an archipelago of four islands located in the Arabian Sea. The largest island, also known as Socotra, lies about 240km (150mi) east of the Horn of Africa and 380km (240mi) south of the Arabian Peninsula. As a consequence of its isolation, the island is home to a high number of endemic species; up to a third of its plant life is endemic. It has been described as “the most alien-looking place on Earth”. In the 1990s, a team of United Nations biologists conducted a survey of the archipelago’s flora and fauna and counted nearly 700 species, found nowhere else on earth; only New Zealand, Hawaii, New Caledonia, and the Galápagos Islands have more impressive numbers.

Photo by @simonnorfolkstudio | Territorially part of Yemen, Socotra (Arabic: سُقُطْرَى‎ Suquṭra), is an archipelago of four islands located in the Arabian Sea. As a consequence of its isolation, the island is home to a high number of endemic species; up to a third of its plant life is endemic. It has been described as ""the most alien-looking place on Earth”. In the Dragon's Blood tree Forest at Diksam. An hour long exposure. The Dragon Blood tree (Dracaena cinnabari) has a unique and strange appearance, with an ""upturned, densely packed crown"". This evergreen species is named after its dark red resin, which is known as ""dragon's blood"". The trees have long been harvested for their resin, highly prized in the ancient world and still used today. Socotrans use it ornamentally as well as for dying wool, as a glue, and a breath freshener. Because of the belief that it is the blood of the dragon it is also used in ritual magic and alchemy. Human activities have greatly reduced the tree's population through overgrazing, and feeding the flowers and fruits to livestock. One of the species' greatest threats is the gradual dessication of the archipelago.

#Repost @natgeo with @get_repost ・・・ Photo by @simonnorfolkstudio on assignment for an upcoming story for @natgeo | The best thing about being back in Jerusalem is to experience again the Damascus Gate. Lens-like, it pulls in in Muslims from Salah e-Din Street, Orthodox Jews from Mea She'arim, Christian pilgrims from the hostels on the old Green Line and even the odd National Geographic photographer and squeezes them through this narrow gap in Suleiman the Magnificent's walls. It's like one of those technical drawings of how a jet engine works: it intakes these believers, fires them through grand architecture and ejects them at high energy through the nozzle of El Wad St and down into the Old City and its holy sites. Except instead of thrust it's an engine for producing piety. I think it is the most exciting, jinking left-turn right-turn in History. I'm rooming on the Via Dolorosa and I have my morning coffee to the sound of pilgrims from Romania or Nigeria or Korea, below my window, singing mournfully at the 8th Station of the Cross.

@igrannapp from @simonnorfolkstudio: Pleased to see a selection of my photographs in a brilliant new title by Hoxton Mini Press ( @hoxtonminipress ) published today: “Unseen London” “London is one of the world’s most photographed cities, so you might think there’s nothing left to see. But you’d be wrong. Through the eyes of 25 contemporary photographers you can venture along hidden canals, around notorious housing estates, through surreal street scenes and deep underground” Here, an image taken deep under London whilst on assignment for National Geographic – a peeling back of the city’s skin to explore the hidden histories unearthed by archaeologists working on the Crossrail development. Crossrail is a railway line under construction in and around London. On completion, a total of 42km of subterranean rail tunnel will have been bored as part of Europe’s largest infrastructure project.

Video of sequenced photographs by Avalanches are common in Afghanistan’s mountainous areas in winter, and rescue efforts are frequently hampered by a lack of equipment. Each year the beautiful, pristine blanket of white holds within it the possibilities of destruction and death. Here another sequence of images from Bamyan Province in Afghanistan’s Central Highlands transitioning through seasons. From a frozen early spring through to the snows of winter, documenting the stages of flooding, irrigation, planting and harvest. Follow for updates, outtakes, unpublished and archive material.
