EDITORS COMMENTS
This print by Emma Trevarthen showcases the devastating effects of coastal erosion on Fort Godwin coastal battery, located near Kilnsea in East Riding of Yorkshire. The image captures the sheer power and relentless nature of the sea as it relentlessly erodes this historic structure. The once-mighty fortification now stands as a haunting ruin, its walls crumbling under the weight of time and constant battering from the waves. This poignant scene serves as a stark reminder of how vulnerable our coastlines are to natural forces beyond our control. In addition to highlighting the destructive force of coastal erosion, this photograph also offers a glimpse into the surrounding landscape. A static caravan park can be seen in close proximity to Fort Godwin, serving as a striking contrast between human development and nature's unstoppable might. Emma Trevarthen's expert composition allows viewers to truly appreciate both the beauty and fragility of these landscapes. Through her lens, we are transported to an eerie world where history collides with present-day reality – where remnants of past civilizations stand precariously against an ever-changing backdrop. This thought-provoking image prompts us to reflect on our responsibility towards preserving these historical sites while finding sustainable solutions for protecting our coastlines from further erosion. It serves as a powerful testament to both humanity's impact on nature and nature's indomitable spirit.
