In Wildness is the Preservation of the World

ISBN: 9781623261160 (HB - E)

In Wildness is a vintage classic that pairs passages by writer Henry David Thoreau alongside images by photographer Eliot Porter. Porter and the Sierra Club founder, David Brower, first published this bestselling, long-out-of-print classic monograph in 1962 and it has been often referred to as "the very first coffee-table book." Although Porter and thoreau lived a century apart, their work beautifully exists side by side in this beloved book that advocates for the preservation of the natural environment. ELIOT PORTER (1901-1990) was an iconic American photographer, most often associated with his outstanding large-format colour photographs of the natural world. HENRY DAVID THOREAU (1817-1862) was an American essayist, poet and philosopher. A leading transcendentalist, Thoreau is beloved especially for his classic book, Walden.
