Clyde’s Cuba Exhibit
Ave Maria University

December 13, 2019 - February 28, 2020

Clyde’s Exhibit Cuba: The Natural Beauty will be on display at Ave Maria University, December, 13 – February 28th.  The exhibit will be located at Canizaro Gallery, which is located on the second floor of the library. Clyde will be at Ave Maria University for a book signing on January 30, 5:30 – 7:30 pm.

This collection documents Clyde’s journey through Cuba on three separate expeditions. Discovering the warmth and hospitality of the Cuban people, through his photography, he has helped open Cuba’s natural beauty to the world. From mountain waterfalls to lush green jungles and grassy swamps to sandy beaches, his photographs reveal the seductive beauty, subtle grandeur, and majesty of this diverse island. The expedition to Cuba took him to places not seen by visitors in over fifty years.

Cuba invited Clyde, as an official photographer, and conservationists from across the Americas and the Caribbean to meet in 2002, a year declared by the United Nations as “The Year of the Mountains.” The U.N. encouraged countries across the world to hold environmental conferences about mountain conservation. Clyde saw this as an opportunity to make a positive difference in the world and wholeheartedly photographed the remarkable island.

Clyde Butcher’s images of Cuba presented in this book will not simply be a melancholy record of what once was, but rather a celebration of what will always be.”  –Robert L. Bendick Jr., Director, Southeast Division, The Nature Conservancy
