Ben Elick and his mentor Steve Veatch have been building an archive of historical photos of the Pikes Peak Region and have then revisited the exact spots where these pioneer photographers stood. This practice, known as “repeat photography”, shows many things to scientists such as landscape, climate, and ecosystem change, and reveals the effects of human and non-human disturbances to the land. The result from their work is striking when they pair historical images with their recent photos. By using this powerful method of photo pairs, that spans from decades to more than a century, you will be able to step into a “time machine” that shows the natural and historical changes of the Pikes Peak region through time. Join Ben Elick for an evening that will capture your imagination.
