Colorado: Black on White

New book and multi-media presentation by John Fielder, 75 minutes

A slide show featuring over 200 John Fielder Colorado photographs….with a catch! See Colorado from the Great Plains to the Rocky Mountains fade from color to black and white. Witness the edges, shapes, and textures of landscapes and wildlife without the distraction of color. Stories of life on the trail, beautiful music, and photo tips, too! John will be on hand before and after the show to sell and sign all of his popular Colorado books and calendars, including his new book Colorado Black on White.

Special presentation for History Colorado to feature many of the historical places from Colorado mining towns to relics of the Great Plains, as well as century-old Colorado ranches that John has photographed in his career.
