The South Florida Museum East Gallery will be exhibiting the extraordinary work of black and white darkroom master, Clyde Butcher, now through August 26th 2012.

Clyde Butcher is an American born photographer who strives to capture the essence of nature photography through large format black and white film photography. Butcher takes his art into a 2,200 square foot darkroom using antique enlargers, creating mural size images that will take your breath away.

When asked why so big, Butcher replied, “I want people to view my work up close. When you’re in nature you’re scanning from the log to the tree to the bird to the water and your mind puts the images together to create the feeling of the scene. When you view my large prints your mind does the same thing because you cannot see the image all at once. And sharpness is the key to it. Your eyes, your brain, wants things to be clear and sharp. All of that makes the viewer relate to my images in a way that is similar to the peace felt when being out in nature. I want my images to create a positive emotion in people, with the hope that they carry that emotion out into their lives to make the world a better place in which to live."
