Eliot Porter, known primarily for his extraordinary, color landscape photographs, also produced a large body of beautifully seen black-and-white work. Eliot Porter's Southwest is the only book published of his black-and-white photographs of landscapes and structures. Highly sought after, this is a beautiful, crisp copy of an increasingly hard-to-find book.
Ever-so-slight bump to top rear cover, corner of one page slightly frayed, otherwise Very Fine in Very Fine dustjacket.
