Synopsis: This collection of over 200 photographs by Bob Case, taken by Bob Case over 50 summers, depicts the abandoned mines, cabins and mining relics in and around the gold mining towns of Cripple Creek, Leadville, Central City, Victor, Fairplay, and many others. As the remnants of Colorado’s rich history of gold and silver mining vanish, Bob’s powerful photographs remain a beautiful and poignant record of the hard and enterprising lives of a tough and resourceful people.

About the Author: Bob Case has had a remarkable life. Despite being born deaf, at the age of 17 he traveled alone to Europe and as a 19-year-old college student, along with several friends, he accompanied a herd of goats to Okinawa to help the people recover from the war. With his deafness came an enhanced visual acuity which enabled him to have a distinguished career in photography. After receiving an MA in Communications he became Chief Photographer for Boston University, did historical research for Cavalcade of America television series in Hollywood, documented post-colonial Africa for the Ford Foundation, had his photographs exhibited in the Kodak Pavilion at two World’s Fairs, and did top secret work for the government in Oak Ridge. His photographs have appeared in many publications, among them The Christian Science Monitor, Newsweek, Time, The Manchester Guardian, Sunday New York Times, and many others.
