The Telluride Historical Museum has collaborated with renowned fine art photographer Lindsey Ross to produce a rare series of limited edition prints created with a negative from the Museum’s collection.
For this collaboration the Museum chose an image originally taken at the intersection of Pine and Colorado in 1884. Most of the buildings you can see in the photo no longer exist and the photograph provides a rare glimpse into what Telluride looked like in its earliest years.
The Museum will be debuting the special series of prints Thursday, Sept. 24 at 5:30 p.m. on the Main Street non-profit busking stage, which also happens to be very near to where the original photograph was taken. The evening will also feature a display of vintage portraits from the Museum’s collection as well as the opportunity to meet Ross, learn about the process she used to create the prints, and, if interested, book an appointment with Ross to have your portrait taken using historical techniques during the course of the weekend.
