Lewis Bush: Shadows of the State. Book Launch & Signing, Thu 8 Feb, 18.30 - 20.00

Please join us and meet photographer Lewis Bush who is launching his new photobook Shadows of the State, published by Brave Books in Berlin.

Shadows of the State is a photographic project which investigates mysterious broadcasts by so called numbers stations, short wave radio broadcasts of coded messages, believed to be intended for undercover agents in enemy states. Despite originating in the darkest days of the last century these transmissions continue today, with broadcasts occurring daily from countries including Russia, Cuba, and North Korea.

Shadows of the State attempts to locate the likely transmitter sites of thirty of these stations. These sites are then mapped using high resolution satellite imagery and displayed alongside radio spectrograms, audio recordings, and extensive information about each station.
