Jonathan Andrew Shoots World War Two Era Defenses
What started out as an small project to kill time during slow business months has turned into a major project that’s been picked up by numerous news outlets and taken him all across Europe in search of these hauntingly beautiful structures. In this video, Jonathan Andrews photographs the remains of World War Two bunkers and defenses and walks you through his entire process from inspiration to actually shooting.
Andrew used a converted medium format camera with a Phase One P45 and each bunker was lit by a single broncolor light fired numerous times over the course of 6-14 minutes giving the appearance that 20-30 lights were rigged to shoot the scene. Finally, Drew Gardner, the photographer asking the questions talks about how his most popular works have always been from the heart and talks about the importance of having personal work as well as commissioned works.
