the last stand

The BBC News website published an article today about a project by photographer Marc Wilson. The Last Stand documents the coastal defences constructed during World War II, before they crumble into oblivion thanks to the constant assault of the waves and the weather. The images project a beautifully silent calm, a stark contrast to the original purpose of the buildings, and a wonderful sense of mystery. I strongly suggest taking a look at more from the series on his website.
