SAGUARO 9 © 2011
Photographic Story Visiting the Saguaro National Park was like walking into a Doctor Seuss book! There are all kinds of strange and weird looking plants, and do I need to say there was a lot of texture in those cactus?! That texture seemed to jump out at us. By the end of the day we had prickly things all over our shoes and clothes. I was only there for a day and regretted that I didn’t have time to stay longer. There are so many photographic opportunities in that strange environment that I definitely want to return. 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.
