Publisher’s Description:


Peter Funch's Last Flight is a photographic series based around an event. That event is the demolition of a bridge in Atchison, Kansas, an American city with an industrial past and about 11,000 citizens on the Missouri river. Atchinson is the birthplace of the mythic American pilot Amelia Earhart, and the bridge was built in 1937-38, shortly after Earhart disappeared over the Pacific Ocean. It was renamed in her honor in 1997, on the centenary of her birth. The Amelia Earhart Bridge was demolished in 2013 because it was too narrow, with not enough lanes for modern traffic. Funch traveled to Atchinson before, during and after the bridge demolition. - William Pym
