Tom Walker: Re-Drawing Paradise

Tom Walker says he was not initially a big fan of the Jersey Shore. Having spent much of his youth on the beaches of northern California, the Jersey Shore was different. He really wasn’t familiar with the “vocabulary” of the landscape here. But slowly over the years, visiting Cape May, Asbury Park, Sandy Hook and other points along the Shore, he came around. “For me the Jersey Shore has a very quiet gentleness to it. I think of broad beaches, long weathered boardwalks, the slow rolling thunder of waves crashing on the shore. The light is very soft there.”
