Colorado 1870-2000 Volume II
The Balance of the Project with 110 More Repeat Photo Pair Available immediately! In 1998, acclaimed Colorado nature photographer John Fielder drove 25,000 miles and backpacked another 500 in order to stand exactly where his 19th century equivalent, William Henry Jackson, stood. From 300 different vantage points, Fielder pointed his camera in exactly the same direction as Jackson once had in order to reveal the changes in the Colorado landscape that have occurred over more than a century. Only 156 of these original then & now photo pairs were published in Colorado 1870-2000, the leather-bound big brown book that made history as Colorado's all-time bestselling regional title. The balance of the project is revealed in Colorado 1870-2000 II. The photographs in this volume are arguably even more scenic and colorful than those of the first volume and yet at the same time equally historical. This volume also contains commentary and historical facts related to the change inherent in the photo pair, written by Dr. Tom Noel, Colorado’s best known historian. From Denver to Dillon and Crested Butte to Durango, the change in Colorado's wilderness, rural, and urban landscapes will invite you back to the book to discover new differences time and again!
