Auschwitz: Staircase in a prison block (Simon Norfolk, 1998)

Simon Norfolk’s haunting landscape photographs record the physical remainders of past atrocities.

This exhibition includes pictures from Rwanda, Cambodia and Vietnam, as well as the death camps in Auschwitz and mass graves in Ukraine.

It ends in the Namibian desert where sands have erased the final traces of the Herero people massacred by German imperialists in 1904.

Admission to the exhibition, which was first shown in 1999, is free. It runs until 10 June.
