5.0 out of 5 stars Uncomfortably beautiful, 21 April 2004
This review is from: Afghanistan (Hardcover)
As an example of fine photography - it's superb. Light and structure areused with truly 'devastating' effect. As a chilling call for attention tothe consquences of our actions - it's even better. Such apparentlybeautiful scenes are soured when the fundamentally damning comments areobserved. Painful, painful irony.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 11 Sep 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Afghanistan (Hardcover)
This is a highly moving monograph of Afganistan after the war. A true antidote to the photojournalistic images with which we are so familiar. A marvellous record of Simon Norfolk's reaction to the natural beauty and human suffering of the country.

This review is from: Afghanistan (Hardcover)
I first saw this book at an exhibition of war photographers that featured amongst others Robert Capa. The book was in a room that contained a reflection of peoples work on war. The book shone out from all the others in it's artistic content and it's attention to detail. I love this book and it always instils a sense of thought and wonder. A bargain at this price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 1 Feb 2010
This review is from: Afghanistan (Hardcover)
Having seen quite a few of Simon Norfolks works online I purchased the book and was totally blown away. The images are incredible and the book flows very nicely from start to finish.
There is a nice selection of different styles of photograph within the book and a nice range of techniques as well, including a stunning long exposure of an ex government building.
I would recommend this book to anyone
