These images are part of a photography, film and music documentary called Apalachicola River, An American Treasure. The participating artists seek to share with the human world the remarkable natural world of the Apalachicola River Basin and the beautiful heritage of those who live on its banks.
Headlining the project is a PBS documentary film by esteemed documentary film maker Elam Stoltzfus. For ten years, Stoltzfus has captured rare images of natural Florida, with his Living Waters documentary recently winning a coveted Crystal Reel award for excellence.
Sammy Tedder, a Florida Panhandle music legend, will score the film. Tedder brings the film alive, weaving in sounds of Native and African-American music, and using natural instruments he has fashioned from the Apalachicola River including swamp reeds for flutes and cypress logs for percussion.
Clyde Butcher, renown Florida Everglades photographer, has traveled to Apalachicola to train his gifted eye on the watershed; his still images will join those of Bickel's in a museum exhibit that will travel throughout the American South. The images from these two photographers will also compromise a two-volume book.
Limited edition Giclee prints (a French print process on heavy museum watercolor paper) are available. These images are exquisitely printed, hand signed by the artist and archival.
