Photobook by Marc Wilson
First published in 2014, this completely revised 3rd edition in a new format, containing 9 new images has been designed by Robert Shaw at Northbank Design.
Between 2010 and 2014, Marc Wilson photographed the images that make up The Last Stand. This 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 91 images and documents some of the physical remnants of the Second World War on the coastlines of the United Kingdom and northern Europe, focusing on military defense 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 more human intervention. At the same time, others have re-emerged from their shrouds.
Over those 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.
