Since 2010 Marc Wilson has been photographing the images that make up The Last
Stand. This piece of work aims to reflect the histories and stories
military conflict and the memories held in the landscape itself.
The series is currently made up of 53 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 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 more human intervention. At the same time
others have re-emerged from their shrouds.
The exhibition at Peacock Visual Arts in Aberdeen will show a selection of 23
images from the series, including those from locations in Scotland, The
Northern Isles, Northern France and England.
