The scale and extraordinary clarity of his work sets it apart as exceptional. In the tradition of the nineteenth-century Hudson River School painters, Clyde composes his works at pristine and untarnished locations across the United States, creating arresting compositions that distinctly mark him as the foremost landscape photographer in America today.Clyde has been called the next Ansel Adams by Popular Photography magazine, awarded as a humanitarian for acting for the betterment of his community, and recognized as a conservationist for bringing issues to the forefront of public consciousness through his art. His photography transcends political boundaries, challenging us to work together to protect natural places across the globe.
Butchers journey began with a humble origin, born in Kansas City, Mo. In 1942, the only child to a sheet-metal worker. Butcher graduated with a degree in architecture from California Polytechnic State University. It was then that he discovered his inability to draw architectural designs.
To rectify this he taught himself photography, enabling him to photograph (rather than draw) his architectural models for presentations. Niki Vogel and Clyde married in 1963.
He saw an Ansel Adams Photography exhibit at Yosemite National Park, and was so impressed by Adams work that he began to photograph landscapes in black and white. Clyde left the architecture field in 1970 and began exhibiting his black and white photographs at art festivals. In 1983 Clyde began photographing Florida beaches, still using color film.He then met Oscar Thompson, a Florida native, who introduced Clyde to the interior of the Big Cypress National Preserve and the Everglades by taking Clyde on his first walk in to the swamp. After his immersion in to the beauty he found so mysterious and primeval, Clyde was then inspired to take black and white photographs of the swamp.
