Product description

Review

"Gorgeous."--"Christianity Today"

"An absolutely exquisite collection."--"Shelf Awareness"

"[Porter's] images are rich and saturated with movement and detail, qualities that this book by Getty curator Martineau honors by simply getting out of the way.... A brief introduction, white space, short captions, and an emphasis on quality reproduction let the artist's work stand for itself."
"Publishers Weekly""

Gorgeous. "Christianity Today""

An absolutely exquisite collection. "Shelf Awareness""

For the last several decades landscape photographers have concentrated on showing man s depredations of nature, but their pictures only take on meaning when set against images of untrammeled beauty by artists such as Eliot Porter. Wall Street Journal"

Some of Eliot Porter s loveliest photographs of birds and fragments of the natural landscape make up this handsome sampling of his work. . . . His subjects are so subtle as to be almost invisible to a casual observer. But once Porter shows them to us, we cannot stop looking. ARTnews"

Gorgeous. Christianity Today"

Beautiful. . . . A concise course in what may be done with a camera in the hands of a master. Choice"

An absolutely exquisite collection. Shelf Awareness"
