My new coffee table book!

198 pages, full color, and hard cover. 

Description from the back cover:

I grew up in Tillson in Ulster County, New York. I moved away, and so did my family, but I have come back as an adult to photograph Ulster County and discover it on my own terms. 

I have revisited people and places from my childhood, plus I’ve met more people and discovered more places. Photos of many of these people and places are included in this book, along with writings about my experience of coming to Ulster County and finding home again.

I have highlighted various familiar businesses, roads, churches, landscapes, and more, including many of the people behind and in front of the scenes.

While there is a special focus on Tillson, Rosendale, New Paltz, and the City of Kingston, this book also includes Saugerties, Hurley, West Hurley, Eddyville, Rifton, Ulster Park, Accord, Ellenville, Milton, Marlboro, Kerhonkson, Highland, East Kingston, Stone Ridge, Boiceville, High Falls, Lake Katrine, Shokan, Woodstock, Gardiner, Cottekill, Glenford, Cragsmoor, Glasco, the Town of Ulster, and the Town of Kingston.

I shot all of the photos in this book between 2008 and 2018, and I also designed the book and wrote all of the text. It is a creation that I am very proud of. I hope that you enjoy it.

I love it. So many dear familiar faces & places. What a gift to our community

I hope that people actually read it, more than just leafing through and looking for pictures of places they know

What an amazing treat for the eyes and soul. I absolutely loved the book, and your unique spin on this area. Your interest in the stories of your neighbors is truly inspiring, and I love that you really take time to connect with individuals.. This is a beautiful piece of work and writing, and you should be extremely proud.

Again, bravo to you. A magnificent love letter to this area.
