SANTA FE RIVER 26 © 2012
Photographic Story During the dry season of Florida I had first discovered this area of the Santa Fe River. It was beautiful and I enjoyed photographing it, but I wondered what it would be like when the wet season began and so I returned. I was pleased to see how much more beautiful the scene was with water at the base of the cypress trees. I was lucky there was a soft mist while I was photographing. It gave the image a feeling of gentleness. 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.
