Photographic Story I was working with Elam Stoltzfus creating a film on the Apalachicola River to highlight the environment and the people of the Apalachicola River. I spent a year traveling back and forth exploring the river and it’s tributaries. It was a great adventure and the film was a wonderful success. During one of my trips to the river Elam, Niki, and I came across this small sweet little inlet to the river. There wasn’t many photographs in the area, but this formation of lily pads floating in the water was graceful and inviting. I couldn’t resist taking a photograph. 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.
