A deserted London suddenly shines forth, after removing from the streets the daily dross of life (cars, trucks, people) due to lockdown. Buildings look like the architect’s plans of them; unblotted, sharp. I’m reminded of the painting of Giorgio de Chirico, their linear clarity and brilliantly lit dreamscapes. Simon Norfolk’s shots reveal a London as pure and immaculate as we’ve never seen it.
Simon Norfolk (1963, Lagos, Nigeria) lives in Hove and Kabul. He is a landscape photographer whose work over twenty years has been themed around a probing and stretching of the meaning of the word ‘battlefield’ in all its forms.
