MOGOTE 3 © 2002
Photographic Story The Department of Flora and Fauna took me to some of their favorite places in Western Cuba. I had no idea that there were mogotes in Cuba and that the area was so beautiful. Seeing the mogotes shoot straight up from mostly flat land gave me a feeling of being in a wonderland. The mogotes of Cuba are located in the south west of the island. They are beautifully mysterious large mounds composed of limestone, marble or dolomite and are surrounded by nearly flat alluvial plains. I could have stayed and photographed this area for a much longer time than the two days I had available. 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.
