The Western Everglades
Photographic Story Big Cypress National Preserve, Florida – During the summer, the storms roll through Big Cypress with such power that it is humbling to realize that even though we humans think we’ve got things under control, nature is far superior. I love being out in the storms. I wasn’t out for long in this one though. There was too much lightning. I jumped out of the car, took the photo and jumped back in as quickly as I could. 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.
