Yeah I know Eliot porter shot large format but as someone else said the plates are contrasty; but I'd say, that doesn't ruin his photographs or ruin the book, they just are a little contrasty and punchy, in the same way that Kodachrome is: but still ovely pictures and the colours are nicely saturated for it , so in my book , it's ok - to get them spot on would have taken a much more expensive book

Lots of full page colour images , I think this is a fine book - Personally I'd recommend it

Pity about the printing 14 Jun. 2007
By Stephen Best - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Eliot Porter's images are well known and there's some worthwhile essays herein, but the reproduction quality is a disgrace. Porter's dye-transfer originals (at least the ones I've seen) never looked as contrasty as presented in this book. I expected better from Aperture.
