National Geographic

Photo by @simonnorfolkstudio | Villers-Bretonneux Military Cemetery & the Australian National Memorial were made after the Armistice of November 11, 1918 by bringing together graves from the surrounding battlefields and burial grounds. Buried here are more than 2,100 servicemen of the First World War, two-thirds of whom died in 1918. More than 600 remain unidentified. The cemetery was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens.

I've been working for a couple of years now on a project about the aftermath of the War. For more on this and other projects, follow me @simonnorfolkstudio
