The Last Stand by Marc Wilson

Very excited to be working with Marc Wilson launching his photography book The Last Stand.
More event details soon, but it will be taking place at Anise Gallery, London this December.

The Last Stand, documents the physical remnants of war in the 20th century in the UK and Northern Europe. By photographing remaining man-made military defence structures situated around their coastal areas, which now sit silently in the landscape, imbued with recent history, Wilson has created a permanent photographic record of the past. Some remain proud and strong, some are gently decaying; many now lie prone beneath the cliffs where they once stood, but through the effects of the passing years, all have become part of the fabric of the changing landscape that surrounds them.

Over these four years Marc has traveled to 143 locations to capture these images, along the coastlines of the UK, The Channel Islands, Northern & Western France, Denmark, Belgium and Norway

Have a read about his project on BBC – In pictures and more information about Marc can be found on his website.
