wildwood days










I've only just discovered Gergely Szatmari, and his superwickedly beautiful & bleak photo series, 'Meadowlands', gives me the mad tingles. I want to move to New Jersey and be a sad Bruce Springsteen song heroine. Or a Soprano.

  1. Oh my god, I'd KILL to be a soprano, all that wine & pasta?! I'm rewatching the series again - perfection.

  3. cool photographs, liking all the snow ones especially. The fifth one down that looks like a old cinema reminds me of those decaying pics of detroit - creepy stuff but another cool photo series x

  4. Wow, these are so fantastic! I've never actually been interested in New Jersey per say, but these photos do change my mind a bit! It's great how a photo can really make even the most dreary place seem like a romantic adventure.

    The title reminded me of a really great piece from a radio show in the US called This American Life, in which a guy describes his summer in the 80s working at an amusement park in NJ called Wildwood--it's super funny and great, if you want to listen to it: http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/443/amusement-park (it's act III, hopefully the stream works in the UK!) x
