About this title


Well known in the West, Clyde Butcher's successful landscape portraits of Yellowstone, Yosemite, and the Badlands provided him with money and acclaim. But, in something of a midlife crisis, he moved to Florida's Gulf Coast--and lost himself in the Everglades. These stunning photos present a wonderful keepsake record of Butcher's time in this beautiful area.

From Library Journal:

Clyde Blutcher is a landscape photographer with a fiercely independent streak and an extraordinary portfolio of Everglades images. Miami-based journalists Shroder and Barry find this artist as complex and as weathered as his subjects. Having written a book that is part biography and part ecological treatise, they let Blutcher's roaming life and lens re-create the story of a photographer driven to make perfect prints of some of America's wildest places. Beginning in the West, Blutcher sold his photographs at flea markets, sidewalk sales, and then through J.C. Penney. The horror of his son's death in a car crash and his subsequent move to Florida found the photographer camping in an abandoned shack in the Everglades. Blutcher discovered a Florida that is lonely and timeless: gathering light and layered with water, swamp, trees, and sky. The authors succeed in making the photographer's advocacy for preservation clear, but by limiting this book to fewer than two dozen of Blutcher's images, they force the text to carry this visual tale. Still, the book is recommended, especially for regional collections.
