HILLSBOROUGH RIVER 2 © 1997
Northeast of Tampa, FL
Photographic Story The Hillsborough River meanders through so many different areas that it is a joy to photograph. Years ago, I gave photographic workshops. At the time, the Hillsborough River was flooded, so we were able to take the boats into areas that would usually be impossible to access. I wanted to show the photographers how important it is to take a photograph from different angles, such as standing in the water. I took this photograph standing in water up to my chest. It was fun sharing the river with a group of people who love photography. It made the day very enjoyable. 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.
