George Fischher (b. 1954) is one of Canada’s most renowned and prolific landscape photographers. His unique style has been recognized around the world. He is well known for his books, and poster series created for various tourism boards. "Anyone who has driven the Trans-Canada Highway between Edmundston and Saint John, New B runswick, has seen, and even crossed over, the St. John River. But not everyone knows it intimately—its moods and landscapes, its villages and river culture. Neither did George Fischer, until he packed his family and photographic equipment in a van and set out to explore and photograph the mighty St. John from its source in a still, small lake in Maine to where it forces its way, against the incoming tides, at tiie reversing falls in the histonc city of Saint John. Along the St John River chronicles Fischer's journey in living colour as seen through his camera lens and own artistic and visual sensibilities. In this celebration of a magnificent river,we are caught up in an extravaganza of colour, mood, and form where the or dinary becomes extraordinary and the unusual becomes fantastic. As former New Brunswick premier, Frank McKenna, says in his moving foreword to this photographic feast, "This is a story that really cannot be told in words." (from the dj). Very good in dustjacket. 15.00
