Simon Norfolk, Afghanistan

By Simon Norfolk, from the Afghanistan Chronotopia series. Bullet scarred outdoor cinema at the Palace of Culture Karte Char district of Kabul.

Simon Norfolk - A government building close to the former Presidential Palace at Darulaman, Afghanistan. Looking at that particular photo from the Afghanistan series, Norfolk clearly tried to show the grandeur of the place and the building. Even in desolation, it still stands to time's testimony. Norfolk somehow manages to capture that past glory over shadowing the ravages of war. Brilliant composition and perfect shot.
