Wildwood is a small barrier island at the tip of southern New Jersey. Through an improbable combination of economics, geography and chance, it contains a national treasure: the highest concentration of mid-century modern hospitality architecture in the United States. A short 3-month tourist season combined with a working-class veneer resulted in Wildwood’s motels remaining virtually unchanged – frozen in time – for over 40 years. But more than half of Wildwood’s motels have been demolished in recent years and for those that remain, the future is in doubt. Ten years in the making, Out of Season is a sprawling series of photographs documenting these vanishing treasures. The images are devoid of people or activity of any kind. This isolation clarifies the bold architectural forms and, more importantly, serves as an analogue of the larger situation. Many of these buildings are empty not simply because the summer is over, but because we as a culture have moved on. A number of the motels in the overall series were photographed at the end of their last season, just prior to demolition. Though the lights are still on and pools still full, there are no more guests, no more summers.
