Praise for The Iowa State Fair
"You just can't beat all the fun you have at the Iowa State Fair. It is Iowa and Iowans at our best!"—Governor Terry E. Branstad
"Kurt Ullrich immersed himself in the 2013 Iowa State Fair with awe and curiosity. He competed, conversed, indulged, and enjoyed himself as a true Iowan while documenting the process. His images show the diversity and beauty of the state's greatest event."—Mary Willie, multimedia journalist, Des Moines Register
