Porter writes in the introduction: "These photographs are an attempt to show, better than any reproductions can possibly do, this expansion of a point of view towards the use of color to interpret the world more freely. It will remain for others to judge whether I have succeeded in revealing - or have even begun to reveal - color as a new dimension in the perception and representation of nature by means of photography."
