Coastal Erosion Pill Box Pillbox


EDITORS COMMENTS
This aerial photograph, titled "Front line 34109_047" captures a haunting relic from the Second World War standing defiantly against the relentless forces of coastal erosion. Taken near Holmpton in the East Riding of Yorkshire in 2019, this image by Emma Trevarthen is a powerful testament to both the strength and vulnerability of human structures. In this frame, we witness a weathered pillbox - an iconic symbol of wartime defense - precariously perched on the edge of crumbling cliffs. The pillbox stands as a silent sentinel, its concrete walls etched with history and memories. Yet, it now finds itself at risk from nature's unyielding assault on our coastlines. The contrast between past and present is stark; once designed to protect against enemy invasions during one of humanity's darkest chapters, this structure now faces an entirely different adversary: time and natural erosion. As waves relentlessly crash against its foundations, it serves as a poignant reminder that even our most formidable defenses are ultimately subject to nature's indomitable power. Emma Trevarthen skillfully captures this moment frozen in time – where history meets uncertainty. Through her lens, she invites us to reflect upon the transience of human endeavors and contemplate how these remnants can serve as tangible reminders not only of war but also our own impermanence within the grand tapestry of existence. "Front line 34109_047" compels us to ponder our relationship with nature while honoring those who fought bravely
