Lecture & Booksigning: Simon Norfolk
British photographer Simon Norfolk will discuss his images of Afghanistan alongside those by 19th-century Irish photographer John Burke taken during the Anglo-Afghan war (1878-80). Norfolk finds modern parallels in his depictions of bomb-damaged buildings, local communities, internet cafes, soldiers and embassy workers, and draws comparisons across a century of British involvement in the region. A booksigning will immediately follow the talk.
