Format: Hardcover
"Eliot Porter", a coffee table-sized retrospective of the famed photographer's life and work, was published in 1987, just a few years before Porter's death. It contains an extended autobiographical essay by Porter, sketching his worldwide photographic career, and a superb collection of over 120 of his best photographs, with annotation of time, place, and subject. An introduction by Martha Sandweiss suggests some perspectives on the collection.

Eliot Porter got into photography as a hobby, and through the encouragement of some professionals in the photography business, became one himself. His images of the natural world, ranging from New England to New Mexico to Antarctica to other locations in the world, are iconic and enduring. His eye for composition and detail are still a worthy standard for any first-rate photographer. This reviewer's favorites are Porter's captures of coastal Maine, including a haunting image of Stonington that is included in this volume.

"Eliot Porter" is highly recommended, even in used condition, to fans of this photographer's work, who share his love of the natural world.

I've been admiring Eliot Porter's work for a long time. Perhaps it's the fault of the printing, but these photos are lifeless and without the appeal we've seen from this master.
