Birds of North America : a personal selection by Eliot Porter( Book )

15 editions published between 1972 and 1992 in English and German and held by 981 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eliot Porter penetrates the images of nature to identify the beauty and behavior of birds in flight or in repose. As always, his concern is for the perfectly composed portrait, never the quick impression. When Porter first photographed birds, the face of North America was largely nature's. In the intervening half century the land has become increasingly urbanized, and today many of our favorite birds are endangered. Mr. Porter's deep concern for birds and our remaining wild lands persuaded him to change careers from medicine to photography."

Mexican churches by Eliot Porter( Book )

16 editions published between 1987 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The churches of Mexico serve as a cultural and historical documents, providing silent but visual testimony to the tangible environment of the varying epochs of Colonial Mexico. A careful look at these buildings reflects the subtle changes in cultural and political thought, aesthetics, and even economic conditions over the centuries. They provide a glimpse of the setting in which people lived, worked, and worshipped in Colonial Mexico. These churches have never before been photographed so thoroughly to this extent, with such meticulous attention paid to their exuberant detail and splendor. In fact, this book includes photographs of interior statuary and decoration that have never been photographed at all. Under often difficult conditions and low lighting, it takes a master like Eliot Porter to produce such glowing and skillful records. On an extended trip through Mexico in 1956, Porter and a friend, New York photographer, Ellen Auerbach, traveled thousands of miles and visited several hundred churches and chapels. Much of what they photographed no longer exists today or has been considerably altered. Their archive, of which this book represents only a fraction, is a major record of one of Mexico's most important and beautiful institutions. . 86 color plates
