Photographed between 2010 and 2014, The Last Stand reflects the histories and stories of military conflict and the memories held in the landscape. The series is made up of 86 images, documenting some of the physical remnants of the Second World War on the coastlines of the British Isles and Northern Europe. Working with a large format camera, over four years 23,000 miles were travelled to 143 locations along the coastlines of the UK, Northern & Western France, Denmark, Belgium and Norway.
Based around my series 'Travelogue 1' this collection of 22 photographs brings together work I made between 2016 and 2021, whilst on the road making my long term body of work, 'A Wounded Landscape'.
Each with its own story to tell.
‘…They gave strict instructions.
Where we could not go.
What we could not photograph.
What we could not do.
How long we could not stay for.
