Description

Eliot Furness Porter, one of America’s foremost twentieth-century photographers, played a major role in establishing color photography as an important art form.  He is known for bird photographs that he made over his lifetime and for his color photographs, whose subjects span the globe and reveal nature’s wondrous configurations of layer and pattern.  His love of the outdoors drew him to writing by Henry David Thoreau, and to associations with twentieth-century environmentalists.
