Context
Porter’s photographs exceeded their documentary value in revealing to the public the canyon’s abstract patterns of water, rock, and light—and through an array of detail—the intrinsic beauty that was lost when the Glen Canyon Dam was completed.

Featured in “Maine and American Art: Farnsworth Art Museum” with thanks to the Henry Luce Foundation and Wyeth Foundation for American Art.
