regram @natgeo Photograph by @simonnorfolkstudio More from my work for the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) featured in a new book, “AFGHANISTAN Preserving Historic Heritage” by the Aga Khan Historic Cities Programme. Here a photograph of the restored Babur's Garden … nestled in the foothills of the Hindu Kush mountains and the fertile alluvial plains of the Kabul River basin, Afghanistan. The garden is named after a young Uzbek Prince, Zahir-ud-Din Muhammad (“Defender of the Faith”; commonly known by his nickname “Babur”) who captured Kabul in 1504 at the age of 21. Babur's garden is divided into stepped terraces of sixteen levels, and his grave is located near the top of the site. The garden represents an oasis of tranquility surrounded by informal residential development; native species of fruit trees and flowers have been planted in the restored garden.

@Regrann from @natgeo - Photo by @simonnorfolkstudio Pleased to see my work for the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) featured in a new book, “AFGHANISTAN Preserving Historic Heritage” by the Aga Khan Historic Cities Programme. Here a photograph of the restored Timur Shah Mausoleum set within a public garden adjacent to the Kabul River. One of the largest surviving Islamic monuments in central Kabul, the mausoleum of Timur Shah marks the grave of the son of Ahmad Shah Durrani, who effectively crated the modern state of Afghanistan in the late eighteenth century. The mausoleum was heavily damaged in recent decades, but now restored it stands as one of the most iconic monuments in Kabul and the surrounding park provides much-needed green space in a congested part of the city.

from @simonnorfolkstudio - The Basilica of St Simeon in Syria, northwest of Aleppo, was home to the Christian ascetic known in 5th century Europe as Simeon Stylites. When the Basilica was finished in 491AD it stood as the largest in the world. A tourist attraction for centuries, the site came under the control of various factions in this cruel and devastating civil war. This time last year (May 2016) the site was seriously damaged in a Russian air strike, less than 5 years after being designated @UNESCO World Heritage status. The current condition of the site is unknown. This photograph is from a selection of work commissioned by Patek Philippe Magazine in 2009 Follow @simonnorfolkstudio for updates, outtakes, unpublished and archive material. @instituteartist @michaelhoppengallery @benrubi_gallery @galleryluisotti @natgeo @thephotosociety @unitednations #Syria #Aleppo #battlefield #war #UNESCO #StSimeon #destruction #aftermath #hope #landscape #photojournalism #journalism #documentaryphotography #simonnorfolkstudio #simonnorfolk #onassignment #documentary #reportage #fineartphotography #seetheworld #archaeolgy #lensculture #visualarchitects #christianity #repostplanet
