The last couple of years I was struggling from burn-out and depression and during my recovery I discovered that photographing nature was like a good therapy session. During that I often caught myself staring into the water for a long time! It made me a little more relaxed! Than one day when I was discovering the Northern coast of France during a road trip, I was standing on the pier of the famous historical second WW2 location in Dunkirk and looking at the waves of the North Sea, thinking about the soldiers who were standing there 75 years ago, waiting for rescue, constantly under threat of the Germans! Those waves I was looking at had so many stories to tell! they had seen so much drama, dead and blood that a lot of my problems looked like peanuts! There I decided to make a series about the Atlantic Wall in memory of those who fought in the war and who died for our freedom who also where staring in the water, waiting for there freedom! world war waves, series 1 Dunkirk!
