    I have been in love with Clyde's work ever since the 2002 OP Masters issue when there, along with some of his work, was a picture of him back in the Everglades with his 8x10 on a tripod in a dingy or some such smaller vessel. I remember thinking, 'This guy's got some.'
    Thank you.

    Since it's my wife's irrevocable plan for us to move to her hometown (Jacksonville) in Florida when I retire, I have come to not only revere Clyde Butcher for his work, but also as a guide to where to explore the state when I move there. Flat, rockless, and verdant, is new territory for me. Butcher makes it seem irresistible.

    One of my proudest possessions is a small (11x14) Clyde Butcher print that I bought in Key Largo a few years ago.

    As stunning as his prints are, the story what led him to move to the everglades and drag ULF cameras through waist deep water is even more compelling.

    But Art, he's gone over to the dark side.

    For Christmas I gave myself the Luminous Landscape DVD of the interview with Clyde about his vision and technique, along with a muckabout through his backyard swamp actually making pictures with the 8x10, and the darkroom where he prints those 8' silver and 18' digital prints. It's worth having for every wannabee photographic artiste!

    During the summer of '05, I made reservations to attend a seminar by Clyde Butcher at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin. I've always admired him and his work, so I jumped at this opportunity, even though it's 8 driving hours away. A day or two before the seminar, I had a surprise assignment I had to take care of and couldn't go. My brother, who lives about 45 minutes away from Wausau, took my place and said the seminar and the photographs were tremendous. He was good enough to get me a signed book by Mr. Butcher, "Seeing the Light". It was signed, "To Marc, Clyde Butcher, Art comes from the heart. 8/6/2005." His story and photographs inspire me, too.
