Clyde Butcher Brings Unseen Cuban Vistas to Wynwood
But the award-winning landscape photographer also traveled to Cuba a few years ago where he snapped some breathtaking pictures of the island's rarely visited regions. After all, when you live in a Florida swamp and look like an old hero of la revolucion, why wouldn't the fossilized regime welcome you with outstretched arms?
The results of Butcher's expedition to Cuba's tropical hinterlands will be on view in "Cuba: The Natural Beauty" opening at Wynwood's Center For Visual Communication Thursday, March 8, with a lecture and slide presentation at 7 p.m. followed by a book signing.
"This is the first time the full body of work will be shown in South Florida", says CVC director Barry Fellman. "From entire mountainsides of Royal Palms to orchids, bromeliads, and ferns, Clyde shows us there is much more in common between our countries than differences."
