In Focus: Jane and Louise Wilson’s Sealander

British artists and twin sisters Jane and Louise Wilson utilize photography and other media to revisit locations associated with recent European history. Their Sealander series, from 2006, features bunkers erected by Hitler along the European Atlantic coast during World War II. The Wilsons’ eerie photographs of these abandoned monuments are on view through July 2 at the Getty Center.
