Often referred to as the Ansel Adams of Florida, photographer, Clyde Butcher, has made for himself a big reputation based on big black-and-white nature images taken with big cameras. He will be mounting a special exhibition as part of the Refuge’s 75th-anniversary celebration through February 5, 2020.
Clyde Butcher is an American large-format camera photographer known for wilderness photography of the Florida landscape. He began his career doing color photography before switching to large scale black-and-white landscape photography after the death of his son. Butcher is a strong advocate of conservation efforts and uses his work to promote awareness of the beauty of natural places.
The scale and extraordinary clarity of his work set it apart as exceptional. In the tradition of the nineteenth-century Hudson River School painters, Clyde composes his works at pristine and untarnished locations across the United States, creating arresting compositions that distinctly mark him as the foremost landscape photographer in America today.
Clyde has been called the next Ansel Adams by Popular Photography magazine, awarded as a humanitarian for acting for the betterment of his community and recognized as a conservationist for bringing issues to the forefront of public consciousness through his art. His photography transcends political boundaries, challenging us to work together to protect natural places across the globe.
For this reason, we encourage you to visit Clyde Butcher’s 75th Refuge Anniversary Photographic exhibition at J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge— while you still can. For more information, please contact the venue at (239) 472-1100!
