130 Miles refers to the measurement of oceanic shoreline along the state of New Jersey, a figure retrieved by the N.O.A.A. in 1975. These images attempt to show the diversity in the landscape that arises from town to town along the coast of the state, from well-known seaside landmarks to World War I artillery bases, in the relatively short distance from the top of Sandy Hook to the bottom of Cape May.
Photographed mostly during the first half of 2012, these images take on a new light following the devastation that amassed along the state's seaboard during Hurricane Sandy in October of that same year. Most of the locations in these photographs were directly hit by the storm, and many have sustained permanent damage, or in some cases, are no longer standing.
