Denver, Colorado: A Photographic Portrait
John Kieffer Photographer
There was gold in the water that day back in 1858 when a group of prospectors settled down at the confluence of Cherry Creek and South Platte River to stake their claim in the first, heady days of the gold rush. Denver began with the promise of great prosperity and today, the Rockies in its backyard, has really struck it rich. Denver is the largest metropolitan area in a six-hundred-mile radius, roughly the size of Europe. It is the regions cultural, financial, commercial, transportation and educational hub and one of America's fastest growing regions. Visit Denver through the pages of this special Photographic Portrait, by Colorado native and photographer John Kieffer and enjoy the stirring images of America's Mile-High City with the regal mountains at its back door.
