Exceptional colour photographs of the mid-twentieth-century motels of Wildwood, New Jersey, USA, the largest concentration of the exuberant architectural style sometimes known as 'doo wop' complete with neon signs and plastic palms.
The images in this book are the result of a ten-year project by Mark Havens to capture the essence of these vanishing treasures.
A number of the motels were photographed at the end of their last season, just prior to demolition.
The images are accompanied by essays from Joseph Giovanni and Jamer Hunt.
