The Blockhaus series documents a series of bunkers built during the Second World War in Lorient, Brittany. Céline Sayé grew up on that coast and saw these bunkers every day. They always intrigued her as they are charged with history and human stories. Over the years, some of these bunkers have been recycled into private houses but many remain abandoned where the landscape is reclaiming its territory. More recently, local artists have painted some of them.
