KEY BISCAYNE LIGHTHOUSE © 1984
Biscayne Bay National Park
Photographic Story I rarely photograph man-made structures, but when I saw the lighthouse on Key Biscayne it’s exotic presence inspired me to take a picture. Several years later Hurricane Andrew crossed over the island leaving destruction all over the island. The lighthouse, and the land surrounding it, no longer look the same. 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.
