Photographer John Fischer grew up in Tillson, in Ulster County. He left the area for college and a career, eventually traveling to all 50 states. In this book, Fischer comes home again and brings readers with him. He captures the beauty — and, sometimes, the blight — of the area, encapsulating Ulster County in a gem of a book. You don’t have to know a lot about Ulster to enjoy his work, but after reading this, you’ll have learned a lot more.
