Clyde Butcher’s powerful black and white photographs explore his personal bond with the environment. Butcher wades through swamps, rivers, bays and wetlands using large format view cameras to create photographs up to 5”x9” in size; the epic scale of his work lets you experience the location in a way that’s almost like being there.
In this digital age, Butcher is one of those rare photographers who still makes his photographs in the “wet” darkroom. His negatives range from 5”x7” to 12” x 20”, allowing him to express elaborate detail and texture in his prints, exposing the intricacy of the landscape.
We invite you to visit his studio today. Studio hours are Tuesday – Friday 10a.m. to 5p.m.
