'Clyde Butcher: Visions of Dali's Spain' is the official exhibit catalog, showcasing Dali's works and Butcher's photos side by side, making clear both artists' reverence and love for Spain's vast splendor.
Clyde Butcher has become known as the 'Ansel Adams' of the Florida landscape. His photos are technically brilliant, and their large scale creates a euphoric experience of immersion in the environment. The power of his photos has led to a reevaluation of the true beauty of the Florida swamp and marsh environment of Lake Okeechobee and the surrounding areas, leading to environmental changes. Salvador Dali is an artist for whom the landscape of his Catalan homeland is everything. Dali had the ability to create a visual world where his Catalan landscape becomes identified with the dream world of the unconscious. Inviting Butcher to capture a body of photos of this magical environment connects Florida's greatest nature photographer with Spain's greatest surrealist visionary, producing a new take on this dream world to be identified with the Florida Dali Museum. Hardcover, 96 pages.
