Marc Wilson’s photography documents the memories, histories and stories that are set in the landscapes that surround us. “Between 2010 and 2014, I photographed the images that make up The Last Stand. This piece of work aims to reflect the histories and stories of military conflict and the memories held in the landscape itself.

The series is made up of 86 images and documents some of the physical remnants of the Second World War on the coastlines of the British Isles and Northern Europe, focusing on military defence structures that remain and their place in the shifting landscape that surrounds them. Many of these locations are no longer in sight, either subsumed or submerged by the changing sands and waters or by human intervention. At the same time others have re-emerged from their shrouds.”

Over four years Marc traveled 23,000 miles to 143 locations to capture these images along the coastlines of the UK, The Channel Islands, Northern & Western France, Denmark, Belgium and Norway.
