Eliot Porter

Fighting against the artistic standard of his peers, Porter was the first notable photographer to use color throughout his work. He started his passion with photographing birds and other wildlife, focusing on the more close up and detailed shots of nature. He garnered great popularity with his book, In Wildness Is the Preservation of the World, published through the Sierra Club.
