Coastlines are cultural interfaces between ‘native’ and ‘overseas’.  This set of stamps with aerial photos around the British Isles are showing geographical fact and the lives of people, who protected their land from invaders, the ports for importers and fishermen to bring food, as well as the farmers working on flat land.

This series of satellite photos from the New York Times show us that the Tsunami has taken thousands of lives from the East coast of North Japan, and had destroyed history and culture alongside a long section of the coastline.
