Stockport, England: Dewi Lewis Publishing, 2002. Oblong 4to. Beige cloth boards in photographic dust jacket. Light shelfwear, with two small closed tears to rear panel of dust jacket. Faint toning to page borders. Near fine in very good plus jacket. 189923554X (Item ID: 22670)

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.
