I saw this on the news. Haunting. Absolutely haunting!
To mark Peace Day on September 21 2013, Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss, two artists from Bradford, England, set out with hundreds of volunteers to commemorate the 9000 civilians, Allies and German forces lost on D-Day, June 6 1944.
Over a period of five hours, volunteers used rakes and stencils to etch 9000 figures into the sand. The results were immortalized through photography with the etched figures washed away by the tide later that day.
Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss of Sandinyoureye funded the project with support from local building merchants Uriah Woodhead, who supplied all of the materials. For more information visit the official website at thefallen9000.info
