They look old, the striking black & white pictures taken through the lens of Clyde Butcher, & they inspire a sense of regret & anger. So much beauty lost..such an ancient spectacle polluted, plowed, paved...gone forever. When the artist presented the photographs to the Florida Museum of History, he was asked if his father had taken the pictures. "They didn't think anything like this was left," relates Mr. Butcher. They didn't know anybody like Clyde Butcher was left. He is often compared to the late Ansel Adams, but he looks more like Grizzly Adams & his camera looks like a large mailbox. Clyde Butcher is one of the world's greatest landscape photographers whose work is prized in public & private collections worldwide... who takes pictures in a manner, & with equipment, considered obsolete...of a natural wonder widely believed to have disappeared. His only medium is black & white, his only subject is the rapidly disappearing native landscape. He uses "old fashioned" view cameras weighing up to 60 lbs. & he develops & prints his own work on equipment he built himself. This second edition of Portfolio I contains 68 of the artist's finest works. It is 12 by 9 inches, Smyth sewn & printed on 110# acid free Eloquence.
