EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the relentless force of coastal erosion at Kilnsea, East Riding Of Yorkshire. The image showcases a haunting reminder of the past as it reveals a First World War Gun Emplacement on the beach, now exposed due to the eroding coastline. Taken in 2016 by renowned photographer Alun Bull, this photograph serves as both a historical document and an artistic masterpiece. The scene is dominated by the sheer power of nature's elements. The vast expanse of sea stretches out towards the horizon, its crashing waves relentlessly gnawing away at the land. In stark contrast to this natural beauty lies a man-made structure - a concrete gun emplacement that once stood strong against enemy forces during WW1. Now left vulnerable and isolated amidst shifting sands and crumbling cliffs, it stands as a poignant symbol of time's passage and human resilience. Bull's expert composition draws attention to every detail; from the jagged edges where earth meets water to intricate patterns etched into weathered concrete walls. This photograph not only documents an important piece of history but also highlights our planet's fragility in face of constant change. As we gaze upon this remarkable image, we are reminded that even structures built for defense can succumb to nature's unstoppable forces. It serves as a powerful testament to mankind’s ability to adapt and endure in an ever-changing world – one where coastal erosion continues its silent battle with humanity’s creations along our precious shorelines.
