the exhibit
Extreme Exposure
October 23- April 17
Century City – Los Angeles – California
Clyde was invited by the Annenberg Space for
Photography and the International League
of Conservation Photographers to be a part
of an exhibit that celebrates five photographers
who thrive in environments that few dare
to explore in order to capture rarely seen
moments of life on our planet.
The Annenberg Space for Photography
collaborated with guest curatorial advisor
Cristina Mittermeier, an award-winning
photographer, conservationist and
President of the International League
of Conservation Photographers, to display
a unique collection of landscapes and
intimate moments between artists and
the environments they explore.
The photographers:
Clyde Butcher
Michael Nichols
Paul Nicklen
Stephen & Donna O’Meara

It allowed the viewer to choose which
photographers images he’d like to see and
then pick the ones liked best and enlarge
them and move them about the surface,
turn them, make them smaller, stack them…
so much fun!

We had great fun playing with the
touch-screen coffee table. It was
hard for them to get us away from
it! I want one of those…fun!

The next evening was the exhibit. It was
a beautiful evening , so we walked
from our hotel to the exhibit.
People were already there when
we arrived…very crowded! It was
great to see the enthusiasm for
photography that the Annenberg Space
for Photography has created.

Entry into exhibit

Lots of famous people came that we
recognized and many that we didn’t

They even had computer screens in
the bathrooms displaying the images
of the photographers!

The view from our hotel.
It was an exciting and amazing exhibit. We
were proud to be a part of a photography
exhibit that utilized the latest in photographic
technical expertise. It was very inspiring. We
thank the Annenberg Space for Photography
for giving photographers such a wonderful
venue in which to display their work.

In January, Clyde was invited to return
to give a lecture about his work. He arrived
to a full house and enjoyed seeing the folks
at Annenberg again, as well as meeting
many wonderful Californians.


The experience with Annenberg Space
for Photography was inspirational. We’re
looking forward to joining with them again
in the future for more great exhibits!
