Less than 500 people live in the town of Rutland, OH, but hundreds more migrate in and out of its borders every year to visit one 88-acre farm called Skatopia. Aside from being one of the most well known backyard skate parks in the world, Skatopia is a somewhat warped version of J.M. Barrie's Neverland, with people of all ages coming to "experience" the fringe culture that has developed there, fueled by binge drinking, light drug use, casual sex, and rampant destruction of cars or property of any kind. Although "88 acres of anarchy" is the skate park slogan, it functions more like a cooperative dictatorship, according to farm owner, Brewce Martin. The gates are open all of the time as people generally filter in and out at their own will. Some camp out for a weekend, others build cabins from scraps and stay for a year; just about everyone raises hell.

I first came across Skatopia and Travis’ work in Rolling Stone - his images capture a sub culture and psychology at the fringe - real truth in these pictures.
Thanks!

I enjoyed the essay but I aggree with William about the missing establishing shots.
