GHOST ORCHID TRIPTYCH – Horizontal
Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve
Photographic Story Over the course of three years, Clyde Butcher trekked into the Fakahatchee Strand to document the rare Ghost Orchid on film. The Ghost Orchid Triptych is a collection of his three iconic silver gelatin photographs that were a result of those trips: Ghost Orchid 1, Ghost Orchid Dancing and Ghost Orchid High. For the Ghost Orchid series, Clyde used a 4 x 5″ view camera. Clyde prints all of his images in his darkroom on fiber-base paper in a limited edition. The photographs are selenium toned, then mounted and matted to current archival standards. Each print measures 5 x 7″, outside mat dimension measures 14 x 26″ and the frame measures 15.25 x 27.25″. May be ordered matted only or matted with black aluminum frame. The Ghost Orchid Triptych is available in a limited edition of 150.
