Lot Details
PORTER, ELIOT. 1901-1990.
Portfolio One, The Seasons. San Francisco: Sierra Club, [1964]. 4 pp. 12 original dye-transfer prints mounted to board. Folio (510 x 380 mm). Loose in original beige cloth portfolio, lettered in gilt. Duplicate copy of text, brief dampstain to some mount edges, some soiling to mount verso, portfolio cover somewhat bowed, prints with rich color.

Limited edition, no 13 of 105 copies, each plate numbered on verso of mount. 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."
