Background: Family Portraits
The Porter Collection holds a small selection of portraits of the artist, his family, and friends from throughout his career. The older images reflect the typical formal and semi-formal shots assembled by an upper-middle-class family in the early twentieth century. The more recent images are mostly portraits of the artist around his studio and in the field given to him by other photographers. The collection also holds approximately fifty gelatin silver print photographs of the Canadian Rockies by Porter's father, James.
