Abandoned WW2 Bunkers by Jonathan Andrew

Our long-standing obsession with abandoned places was piqued when we saw this series, an artful look at the abandoned military bunkers of the second world war.  Photographer Jonathan Andrew has traveled across Europe to document the decay of WW2-era military bunkers, standing strong and stoic against time.  These bunkers in The Netherlands, France and Belgium have been marked by graffiti, by wear and discoloration, but their concrete shapes remain firm against invisible invaders from a fading history.  Andrew’s photographs are both haunting and serene, a stark reminder of a troubled century in Europe.
