Photographic Story Caloosahatchee River, outside of Ft. Myers, Florida – This picture was taken at daybreak while there was still fog lingering over the river. While I was taking this photograph I suddenly saw an alligator rush toward me. Fortunately, I had my tripod in front of me, and the gator swam past me chasing a school of fish! 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.
