The Hubert Library on FIU's Biscayne Bay Campus will host a photography exhibit by renowned photographer Clyde Butcher. "Cuba: The Natural Beauty," was done in conjunction with the United Nations Conference for the Sustainable Habitat of the Mountains and explores the mountains and coastlines of the island. Butcher's images are captured with large format cameras that use 8”x 10,” 11”x 14,” and 12”x 20” negatives, with exposures that are sometimes as long as an hour. The handmade, darkroom developed photographic prints range in sizes from 8x10 inches to 5x8 feet. These techniques allow him to express the elaborate detail and textures that distinguish the intricacy of the Cuban landscape.
Join us on Tuesday, November 1st for an opening reception and discussion by Clyde Butcher at the Glenn Hubert Library. The reception and book signing will begin at 6pm, and a discussion by Butcher will begin at 7pm. The reception is FREE and open to all.
