WIldwood Project: I was never a Jersey Shore person. My first good experiences with beaches and the ocean was the rocky beaches of New England and the big cold waves of California. I do love the boardwalks of Jersey costal towns. I especially like Wildwood in southern New Jersey. To me it is a snapshot of the next wave of aspiring Americans. I mean this is a positive way. I enjoy the familes and the indulgence in simple things. I also like the conceptual tension between the honky-tonk and the nature of the ocean a few hundred feet away.
