The Last Stand | Marc Wilson

"Since 2010 I have been photographing the images that make up The Last Stand, that aims to reflect the histories, stories and memories of military conflict. The series is currently made up of 51 images and is documenting some of the physical remnants of the Second World War on the coastlines of the British Isles and northern Europe, focusing on military defense structures that remain and their place in the shifting landscape that surrounds them."

- Marc Wilson
