An exhibition of 140 digital prints of the Atlantic Wall at the Royal Geographical Society, 1 Kensington Gore, London SW7. June, 2014.

Hitlers Atlantic Wall – a chain of concrete fortifications built between 1940-44 stretching some 3,000 miles from arctic Norway to the Spanish border – is without doubt the largest construction project in human history to have been completed in so short a time.

‘Ianthe Ruthven’s stylish and powerful – even compelling – photographic record of the Wall shows up all its intricacies as well as its gigantism: the overwhelming, bare and void structures with which Hitler’s miscalculations littered the west of Europe’ – Joseph Rykwert
