Civilization Editors’ Pick

“We see not only with our eyes but with all that we are and all that our culture is” – Dorothea Lange

“Having just been included among the countries of Trump’s Muslim Ban, I feel it worth showing Iran under a different, less propagandistic lens. The aim of my work is to try to create discourse around the landscape of this largely unknown country”.


Following Simon Norfolk’s selection of winning images for our theme ‘CIVILIZATION’, this compilation of 20 images, selected by the Life Framer editors represents some of the other talented photographers whose work struck us and left a mark. Some are more literal representations of the theme, and others are more abstract, but each one is a stunning image worthy of exposure and attention.

These are intended to be a conversation starter… so feel free to join the discussion on our social networks.
