"I Follow the Light and Let Nature Present Itself." Clyde Butcher
Glen, a volunteer, shows the camera and explains the photographic processes used by Clyde Butcher to capture high resolution black and white nature photographs.
Clyde Butcher has been the most prominent photographer of the Everglades for decades. His portrait is one of those featured in the Guardians of the Everglades series I showed recently. I recently went to his art gallery in the Everglades, midway between Naples and Miami. His impressive large black and white photographs line the walls and are available for sale.
The Butcher gallery also has naturalists who lead swamp walks through the Big Cypress National Preserve, part of the Everglades. I went on a swamp walk (more tomorrow) and took photographs. In honor of Mr. Butcher, I converted these three photographs to black and white. Let's be clear: These are my photographs, not Mr. Butcher's. So, they are worth $1.99 each, not $5,000.
