Worth a Look: Simon Norfolk exhibition at Guernsey Photography Festival

I’ve seen a couple of links this week to a beautiful and interesting exhibition of Simon Norfolk at the Guernsey Photography Festival that is running now through 29 May, on the island of Guernsey.

Foto8 has a report from the festival by Max Houghton, who wrote:

The photographs of Simon Norfolk act as a further disruption to the pervading tranquility. [Director of the festival Chris] Godet chose Norfolk’s work from Afghanistan, Chronotopia, for the festival, and again, I find another resonance in this new context. They are immaculately presented, in a world-class installation by Chris Humber, mounting the flawless prints between glass onto local Guernsey rock. Norfolk immediately registered future possibilities for outdoor presentation, and was making mental calculations about Kabuli stonemasons within seconds of seeing it.

I think this is great, a higher budget version of an idea we kicked around about alternative exhibition possibilities in a post called Bringing Photos Back to the Street. I hope you have a read if you haven’t already. Get inspired and share with us some innovative exhibitions from the street and in public.
