THREE PEAKS OF CUBA © 2002
Photographic Story United Nations declared 2002 the year of the mountains. Celebrations and conferences were held all over the world. The conference for the mountains of the Caribbean was held in Cuba. Clyde was invited by the Ambassador to Cuba from the United Nations to photograph the mountains for the conference being held in the Sierra Maestra Mountains. I loved the way this fig tree had made itself at home against the rocks in the edge of the mountain. The texture combined with the smooth bark of the tree made for an interesting photograph. Digital – Archival Pigment Print This photograph was taken with an analog large format camera. After Clyde develops the negative, the film is scanned and edited in a computer program mimicking his darkroom techniques. The photograph is printed on an Epson Stylus 4800 or 11880 printer. Clyde uses archival Ultra-chrome K3 ink and prints on archival Harman Hahnemuhle paper. The limited edition photograph is then mounted and matted to current archival standards. Each print is signed and numbered.
