When Joseph Collier left Scotland bound for Central City, Colorado in 1871, it was unclear whether the young immigrant would make much of a name for himself. However, through hard work and perseverance, Collier developed a reputation as one of the state's preeminent pioneer photographers.
Now, over a century later, Grant Collier has literally followed in the footsteps of his great-great-grandfather. Grant has traveled across Colorado taking photographs from precisely the same spots where Joseph Collier captured his images. These photographs are presented for the first time in Colorado: Yesterday & Today.
One of "the best books of the year." - Rocky Mountain News.
"Collier's book is considerably more interesting than John Fielder's as a result of the familial tie." - Mike Daniels, The Mountain Connection
"I have collected a number of books over the years addressing Colorado by David Muench and other gifted authors and photographers. I have found no book as impressive and as well crafted as Colorado: Yesterday & Today." - Steve Rawlings, customer
