Norfolk's color photographs of Afghanistan, both post-war and mid-war. Consciously situated within the European tradition of finding aesthetic pleasure in picturesque ruin, but without the mystery and distance usually afforded by such scenes: the viewer knows who left these piles of abandoned military equipment, what collection of armies past and present did the ruining. Beautiful in spite of itself. Includes several multi-page fold-out plates, all intact. Winner of the 2002 European Publishers Award for Photography.
