Preserving Eden, The Florida Photographs of Clyde Butcher, explores the breadth and depth of the Florida Landscape, from wetlands to dunes, coastal hammocks to inland swamps. The exhibit depicts the natural beauty and diversity of the land, while highlighting some of its more unique aspects of natural history. His powerful compositions draw us into the depth of the swamps and transport us to the serenity of our tropical waters. Exploring the diversity of the state, Clyde hopes to engage our eyes, emotions, and hearts to move us to action in appreciating the richness of the land.
