LOOSESCREW GATOR © 1996
Big Cypress Gallery
Photographic Story This guy is the resident gator of the pond in my backyard. Why is he called Loosescrew Gator? Well, when I bought the property in the middle of the Big Cypress National Preserve to build my gallery and home, a friend said I had to have a screw loose to build so far away from civilization. So, I called my property the Loosescrew Sanctuary…and this impressive creature became the Loosescrew Gator. 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.
