France’s west coast is littered with the eerie reminders of the biggest conflict in history. The bunkers are still standing from the German Army’s Atlantic Wall fortifications.

Some rise from the sand, huge concrete monoliths, others are close to buried.

Graffiti artists up and down the west coast are using these haunting structures as canvases for their typography and art work. A less destructive use for these decaying ghosts of Hitler’s European fortress.
