Off Season

A small town of Bray-Dunes lies at the very north of France, right by the Belgian border. Half-sandswept and forgotten in time, it slowly transforms into its own monument. Once a battlefield and a defence point for the Allies during the Second World War, in the winter the place is a sad yet hauntingly beautiful postconsumerist reminder of its declining glory as a summer tourist destination. Most of the properties are unused and sealed off, thus leaving wind, sand, wild grass and waves to become true hosts of the grounds.
