Overview

The United Nations declared the year 2002 as “The Year of the Mountains” and encouraged countries all over the world to have environmental conferences regarding the conservation of mountains. The Conference for the Caribbean and the Americas was held in Cuba, and Clyde Butcher was invited to photograph the mountains of Cuba for the conference. He spent three weeks photographing from the Sierra Maestra of the east coast to the mogote region of the west coast—rain forests, waterfalls, and cliffs that drop off into a perfect ocean. The beauty and majesty of Cuba’s natural landscape are captured in his intimate compositions, their focus on shape and light, the horizon and the sky.
