Description
Faithfully—and gorgeously—reproduced from new scans of Eliot Porter's original dye transfer prints, the photographs in this 50th-anniversary edition of his 1962 masterpiece capture the subtleties and the richness of hue that earned Porter the sobriquet "the Ansel Adams of color photography." These images of New England woods and streams, taken in all seasons over ten years, are evocatively paired with the words of Henry David Thoreau, their direct inspiration. In his photos of the similarly striped oven-bird and chipmunk, delicate violets and vigorous aspens, cool green luna moths and fiery red and orange pond reflections, Porter speaks across a century to a man who profoundly understood the importance of wilderness, both to the world and to the spirit of humankind.
