Description


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.
