Recognized as both a legendary photographer and a national treasure, Clyde Butcher has been creating exquisite black and white photographs of the untouched natural landscapes for more than 50 years. Internationally renowned, his stunning photography transports the viewer into the primordial beauty of expansive horizons, endless vistas, and seldom seen splendor of the wilderness. His powerful images explore not only his own personal bond with the environment, but beckon us to our own personal communion with the natural world. Clyde has been called the next Ansel Adams by Popular Photography magazine, awarded as a humanitarian for acting for the betterment of his community, and recognized as a conservationist for bringing issues to the forefront of public consciousness through his art. His photography transcends political boundaries, challenging us to work together to protect natural places across the globe.

“We are so honored that Clyde agreed to be the first presenter for Evenings at the Homestead,” said SCCF Executive Director Erick Lindblad. “During SCCF’s Annual Membership Meeting, Mr. Butcher is being recognized as the 2017 Prize Recipient of the SCCF J.N. “Ding” Darling Brush of Excellence Environmental Art Program. It’s just great he can stay on another day to make this presentation the night of the 14th.”
