Marc Wilson is a documentary photographer from Bath, England. Marc’s work has been published in National Geographic, The British Journal of Photography, The Times, the Telegraph, Wired and he’s exhibited his work round the UK and Europe.
Marc’s latest project, A Wounded Landscape, bears witness to the Holocaust through the stories of 22 Holocaust survivors. It was shot over 6 years at 160 locations through out Europe and features over 350 photographs. We talk in depth about this project, the logistics of it, the challenges and sensitivities around it, the importance of continuing to talk about the Holocaust and how the process of making this work changed Marc as a person.
We also touch on Marc’s other work, The Last Stand, which documents the physical remnants of Second World War defence structures and their place in the landscapes that surround them. It’s fascinating conversation with a thoughtful, sensitive and articulate photographer and I feel very privileged to share it with you.
