Frank: 'This project is a response to the current migration 'crisis'. It involves photographing along the route of the Antonine Wall both from the ground and air. The wall was once the northwest frontier of the Roman Empire. It was built to control the movement of people between Britannia and Caledonia and as a symbol of imperial power. Soldiers from several territories built and garrisoned the wall including Romans, Germans, Iberians and Syrians. Today the wall is a Broken Line running across central Scotland, a reminder that all borders are transitory.'
