About this book

Combining a naturalist's eye for detail with a consummate artistic sensibility, Eliot Porter's portraits of birds are among the most accurate and aesthetically satisfying since Audubon's celebrated paintings. Porter's great passion was the songbirds or passerines, many of which are endangered or threatened. Prior to his death in 1990, he had planned to publish his lifelong study of these birds. At last, this landmark project has been realized. Vanishing Songbirds showcases the 140 images that Porter had personally selected and printed for the work - beautifully composed stop-action images that capture these shy birds in their native habitats.
