SAGUARO 9 © 2011
Photographic Story Visiting the Saguaro National Park was like walking into a Doctor Seuss book! There are all kinds of strange and weird looking plants, and do I need to say there was a lot of texture in those cactus?! That texture seemed to jump out at us. By the end of the day we had prickly things all over our shoes and clothes. I was only there for a day and regretted that I didn’t have time to stay longer. There are so many photographic opportunities in that strange environment that I definitely want to return. Analog – Archival Silver Gelatin Photograph Clyde’s silver gelatin black and white images are created using an 8” x 10”, 11” x 14”, or 12” x 20” view camera. Clyde prints his images in his own darkroom on fiber-base paper in a limited edition. The photographs are selenium toned, then mounted and matted to current archival standards. His images come in sizes from 8” x 10” inches to 5’x 8’ feet. His love of art and nature is seen in the exceptional detail and more subtle textures of his photography. Each photograph is individually hand printed in the darkroom and will vary based on factors such as artist preference, chemistry and temperature. The image displayed on the website is a digital scan of the original negative and should be considered a representation of the printed version of the art.
