Wilderness photography with a focus on preservation.
The Polk Museum of Art opens its first exhibition of the real “new millennium” with a beautiful vision for the future. Clyde Butcher has established himself as a premier photographer of Florida’s wilderness. His intent has been to draw attention to the hidden beauty that still lies at the core of state, thereby bringing renewed interest in natural preservation. In Visions for the Next Millennium, Butcher has broadened the scope of his mission by including photographs that he has taken throughout the United States. The thirty-seven stunning black-and-white images range from the relatively modes size of 3′ x 4′ up to a breathtaking 5′ x 9′.
