EL YUNQUE © 2002
Photographic Story Thirty miles from Baracoa is the mountain of El Yunque (The Anvil). It is approximately 1,725 feet high and has been used for centuries by sailors as a visual indicator for finding the bay at Baracoa. We were visiting the outskirts of Baracoa when I saw El Yunque in the distance. I thought it was strange that it had such a flat top and wondered if man had leveled the mountain. I was told by locals that it had been that way since the beginning of time. I felt that the history of the mountain and its unusual shape deserved a 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. This is a limited edition series and each photograph is numbered.
