World War II military bunkers are still present in Europe. These imposing concrete structures have stood the test of time, some reused but most of them abandoned a long time ago. Photographer Jonathan Andrew documents in his “WW2 Bunkers” series the current condition of these structures in The Netherlands, France, and Belgium. These images are a reminder of the conflicted past in Europe.
