I’ve been working for a year now on a larger project about the aftermath of the First World War. Stumbled across these munitions whilst photographing in a field in the Somme.

Estimates are that there were 50,000 pilgrims in Jerusalem over the Easter weekend which saw a rare combination of Jewish Passover and Orthodox and Catholic Easters all at the same time. Many of the Christian groups were carrying national flags such as Eritreans and Serbians. Through it all was a massive security presence from the many different branches of the Israeli police and military.

"Photograph 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 created 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.

Much of the ministry of Jesus occurred on the shores of Lake Galilee. In those days, there was a continuous ribbon development of settlements and villages around the lake and plenty of trade and ferrying by boat. The Synoptic gospels of Mark (1:14–20), Matthew (4:18–22), and Luke (5:1–11) describe how Jesus recruited four of his apostles from the shores of Lake Galilee: the fishermen Simon and his brother Andrew and the brothers John and James. One of Jesus' famous teaching episodes, the Sermon on the Mount, is supposed to have been given on a hill overlooking the lake. Many of his miracles are also said to have occurred here. Increasing water demand in Israel, Lebanon and Jordan, as well as dry winters, have resulted in stress on the lake and a decreasing water line to dangerously low levels at times. The Sea of Galilee is at risk of becoming irreversibly salinized by the salt water springs under the lake, which are held in check by the weight of the freshwater on top of them Follow @simonnorfolkstudio for updates, outtakes, unpublished and archive material. @natgeo @simonnorfolkstudio #photojournalism #documentaryphotography #simonnorfolk #climatechange #bible #biblical #archaeology #Jesus #religion #faith #holyland #christianity #simonnorfolkstudio #igtravel #visualarchitects #lakegalilee #galilee #Tabgha #seaofgalilee @simonnorfolkstudio

#Repost @natgeo: Photograph by @simonnorfolkstudio on assignment for an upcoming story for @natgeo ... Mosaics at the Church of the Nativity, Bethlehem: The Doubting of Thomas. The Church of Nativity in Bethlehem is the only major church in the Holy Land that survives intact from the early Christian period. The Church of the Nativity was originally commissioned in 327 by Roman emperor Constantine and his mother Helena over the cave that is still traditionally considered to be the birthplace of Jesus. The present church was built by the Emperor Justinian after the destruction of the Samaritan Revolt of 529 CE. In 614, the church had a narrow escape. A Sassanian army from Persia had invaded the Holy Land and proceeded to destroy all the churches. However, they desisted at Bethlehem because they recognised the images of their ancestors, the Magi, above the entrance to the Church. The site is currently under restoration within an international project managed by the Palestinians through the Project Client "The Palestinian Presidential Committee for the Restoration of the Nativity Church". Work on the mosaics is part of an estimated $19 million makeover -the building hadn't undergone major repairs since 1479. Of the 2,000 meters of original mosaics, only 150 meters squared remains. Mosaics created 155-1169CE The artist, Basilius, signed his name in Latin and Syriac — using tesserae. Basilius did the technical work, Aram was was the artist.

#Repost from @natgeo with @regram.app ... Photo by @irablockphoto // It's the 16th Anniversary of the tragic events of September 11. I photographed the Twin Towers of Light the first time they illuminated the New York skyline, March 2002, six months after the towers fell. The photo was taken from the Empire State Building while I was on assignment for the Nat Geo. To the left of the lights you can see the glow of Ground Zero where the recovery operation was still going on. I am posting this photo as a memorial to those who perished and a tribute to those who survived. #9/11 #twintowers #wtc #newyork #sept11  @thephotosociety @natgeo @natgeocreative @natgeo @simonnorfolkstudio #photojournalism #documentaryphotography #simonnorfolk #jerusalem #archaeology #Jesus #religion #faith #holyland #christianity #simonnorfolkstudio #igtravel #visualarchitects #crucifixion #mossicy
