The John Fielder’s Colorado Collection is Now Available to the Public!

A collection of more than 6,500 images showcases and immortalizes the breathtaking vistas of the Centennial State and the need to preserve them. History Colorado is elated to announce that John Fielder’s Colorado Collection is now publicly available. Composed of more than 6,500 photographs and objects donated to History Colorado by premier landscape photographer and renowned conservationist John Fielder, this collection immortalizes the landscapes of every county in the state and represents a life dedicated to the preservation and protection of Colorado’s public lands.

With this collection now digitally available, the public can begin accessing it through the History Colorado Online Collection where they can look over the entirety of the more than 6,500 images and objects, or explore curated lists on webpage that allow them to follow in Fielder’s footsteps by exploring specific counties. In addition to viewing the collection online, the public will be able to request hi-res digital copies of these images through the Stephen H. Hart Research Center at a nominal fee.

One location stands above the rest of the 104,000 square miles he visited during his 50 years as a nature photographer. Curated in collaboration with John himself, History Colorado’s exhibition “REVEALED: John Fielder’s Favorite Place” takes you to a location that few have ever experienced, a location John feels is the most sublime in all of the Centennial State. You can view this exhibit in person until February 11, 2024.

Beginning January 25th, 2024 there will be another Fielder exhibit titled “On the River”.
History Colorado is located at 1200 N. Broadway, Denver, CO. 80203.
