    One of problems with color in Photography is how do you "grab" or get the attention of a color satiated viewer. Eliot Porter, one of the pioneers in color photography, is almost forgotten possible because of the muted tones of most of his prints. Galen Rowell achieved some recognition thru his almost surreal images. But how can you go further in color? Unless there is a return to appreciation of subtler tones, probably only digital graphic artists can achieved the vibrant colors currently admired by viewing public.

    Interesting take. Porter and Ernst Haas would likely be the top two on my list of fine color photographers.

    Eliot Porter

    July/August 2003 issue of View Camera contained an article on Porter by Michael More.
    In terms of his visual intelligence, technical mastery... influence on other photographers, museum holdings, titles published, and publications sold - Eliot Porter stands alone. There was only one problem. By 2001, no one seemed to care.
    and
    But William Eggleston's color print of a tricycle on a suburban Memphis siewalk sells for $150,000 - 15 to 30 times the price of a Porter. The extrinsic value of a hot photographer has become, the New York Times wrote last year:"the new, new thing in the art market"
