‘Save the Ligne Maginot’ by Alexandre Guirkinger

The Maginot Line was a project undertaken by the French government to protect against another Germany incursion after World War I. Though it never saw use due to Germany’s blitz through the Netherlands, the project left a series of tank traps, tunnels and fortresses along the French frontier. Photographer Alexandre Guirkinger is documenting the network of tunnels and bunkers in ‘Save the Ligne Maginot‘. Check out this series of photographs and get a feel for the entire experience with this video provided by Wallpaper.
