Overview

"Eliot Porter made his first color photograph in 1939, the year he resigned from teaching and research to pursue photography as a career. Over the next fifty years, his work was exhibited widely and he produced more than two dozen books of his photographs. He became a passionate ambassador for environmental causes and, through his images, set the standard for color landscape photography and inspired generations of photographers to come. Robert Glenn Ketchum counts himself among them. Ketchum is among the leading contemporary photographers of the American landscape. His many books use fine art color photography to address environmental issues." "The Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, is a museum of American art. It houses one of the most important collections of photography in the country, including Eliot Porter's archives, which the artist bequeathed to the museum upon his death in 1990. The museum is also a repository of Ketchum's work, and Regarding the Land marks the first time that photographs by these two artists have been brought together into one volume." Regarding the Land: Robert Glenn Ketchum and the Legacy of Eliot Porter has eighty-eight color and duotone plates. The book also includes chronologies of both artists and lists their publications and major exhibitions.
