Eliot Porter is one of the most important photographers of the 20th century and is known for his landscapes and vibrantly colored images of birds which elevated color and nature photography to the status of fine art. Encouraged early in his career by his brother, Fairfield Porter, and photographers Ansel Adams and Alfred Stieglitz, Porter decided to make photography his career.
