‘The Land of Little Rivers’ through the eyes of a photojouralist

LIVINGSTON MANOR, NY — An exhibit of 24 exciting oversized photos of the famed Catskill fishing waters by the late Enrico Ferorelli, many of which appeared in Mac Francis’ book, “The Land of Little Rivers,” will be held in the Wulff Gallery of the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum on Old Route 17 at 12 noon, May 2. Ferorelli was one of the most dramatic photojournalists of the last half of the 20th century and the first part of the 21st. Over the years he worked for a number of major magazines including Look, Life and National Geographic.

This project is made possible with funds from the 2015 Arts of Sullivan Decentralization Program, administered by Delaware Valley Arts Alliance.
