CORAL COAST 1 © 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. I 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. The south eastern area of Cuba, near Guantanamo, is an exposed ancient coral reef. As I carefully walked over the ragged reef I thought about all of the geologist who would love to study this area of Cuba. The emptiness of the landscape contrasts in a very dramatic, yet beautiful, way compared to the green of the rest of the country. 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.
