Clyde Butcher’s powerful black and white photographs explore his personal bond with the environment. The exquisite beauty and depth of his work draw the viewer into a relationship with nature. For more than fifty years, he has been preserving on film the untouched areas of the landscape. For four months, "Cuba: The Natural Beauty," an exhibition of his work, done in conjunction with the United Nations Conference for the Sustainable Habitat of the Mountains, will be on display at the Glenn Hubert Library (HL) at BBC.
The Hubert Library on FIU's Biscayne Bay Campus will host a photography exhibit by renowned photographer Clyde Butcher. "Cuba: The Natural Beauty," was done in conjunction with the United Nations Conference for the Sustainable Habitat of the Mountains and explores the mountains and coastlines of the island. Butcher's images are captured with large format cameras that use 8”x 10,” 11”x 14,” and 12”x 20” negatives, with exposures that are sometimes as long as an hour. The handmade, darkroom developed photographic prints range in sizes from 8x10 inches to 5x8 feet.
