For more than two decades, world-renowned landscape photographer Clyde Butcher has explored the deeper regions that extend nine miles east of I-75. There, lies the alluring, exotic and primal locale of Myakka River State Park. From rainy, swampish seasons when tannic waters rise and flood, to the dry, muggy seasons where wildlife line along the banks to bask in the sun, Butcher spends secluded sessions experiencing its climate changes and dabbling with its rugged ecosystems. This month, The Bishop Museum of Science & Nature will launch Myakka River: A Florida Treasure, a special exhibition featuring large-format black and white, scenic photographs taken by the legendary Florida photographer and environmentalist. The exhibition will open to the public in the East Gallery on February 7 and remain through September 6, 2020, and is included in the price of admission to The Bishop.
