America the Beautiful: The Monumental Landscapes of Clyde Butcher
Clyde Butcher’s photographs celebrate the majesty of the American landscape with a monumental size and extraordinary clarity that set them apart as exceptional works of art. He continues the tradition of nineteenth-century Hudson River school painters, composing his works at strikingly beautiful and untarnished locations across the United States – from the coast of Maine, to the Badlands, to Hawaii.
Butcher’s arresting compositions distinctly mark him as the foremost landscape photographer in America today.
The beauty of Butcher’s photographs is emphasized by the epic size of his works. His compositions – the largest is 5 by 8.5 feet – allow the viewer to experience the beauty of the site from an almost first-hand perspective. Their large dimensions, combined with their strong sense of fluidity and movement, help his work transcend the static nature of the photographic medium.
