Featured Author

Clockwise from top left; Featured author Tom Till, cover of New Jersey Impressions, and interior spread from New Jersey Impressions.Meet Tom Till, photographer for the newly released New Jersey Impressions.

“When I started shooting in New Jersey, Johnny Carson was still on TV. One night I was amazed to see him hold up a calendar with my cover shot on the air! My photo was on Johnny Carson! However, the honor was a little dubious: The name of the calendar was Wild and Scenic New Jersey, and as Carson was doing a “bit” about silly but real calendars. The audience went wild with laughter at the very idea of “wild and scenic New Jersey.” Well, anybody who knows anything about the Garden State knows that’s a cheap shot and that New Jersey is a beautiful place. I’ve spent a lot of time trying to change people’s minds about the state, and hopefully this new book will help.”

Just one of many purplish bars.
