Clyde Butcher's National Park Photographs
September 9, 2017 - October 7, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 9, 5-7pm. Butcher has compiled his favorite black-and-white photos into a beautiful exhibit and new book, “Celebrating America’s National Parks, Preserves, Monuments, Recreation Areas.” Released to coincide with the National Park Service’s Centennial, this inspiring collection covers 33 national parks and more than five decades of Butcher’s timeless photographs. The extensive collection of work was primarily taken with his large-format film camera, which enables him the ability to present immense detail in his photographs. Viewers can intimately connect with each scene through mural sized traditional hand-printed silver-gelatin photographs; each photograph is individually processed in his 2,200+square foot darkroom
