He then presented two series of photographs, both of which I thought were incredibly amazing - second, and less impressive to me, were his photos of mayan ruins, all taken at night, lit up with 20,000 watts of portable lighting equipment. These should be available on the national geographic magazine website soon, but aren't as of yet. They are beautiful. But before he showed those, he showed a quick series of photos he'd taken recreating famous English landscape paintings; not just the composition but the politics.
He has a web site, at http://www.simonnorfolk.com/. The interface is flash, though relatively unobtrusive for that, and excerpts of that series are available, as are others. I just read/looked at most of them, and recommend you do the same.
