Entry Description

Thom and Beth Atkinson's first photobook preserves the physical and psychological landscapes of the 
Second World War in London. Missing Buildings reveals London as a vast archeological site, bearing the visible scars of its violent wartime past. Blurring fact and fiction, Missing Buildings asks us to contemplate the effect of war upon the British psyche and suggests that the power wrought on our imaginations by the Blitz, is a legacy as profound as the physical damage it caused.
