WESTON BEACH 4
Point Lobos, California
Photographic Story I was invited to be a part of a discussion group for View Camera Magazine at the Monterrey Convention of Mammoth Cameras. I had photographed Point Lobos when I was young and had always wanted to return. I took advantage of the trip out west to spend some time at Point Lobos. It was low tide when I took this picture, so I was able to capture the textures and shapes of this rock formation. Point Lobos is a photographers paradise. No wonder Weston enjoyed photographing there so much, and why they named this beach after him. I was fortunate to arrive at the beach at low tide and was able to photograph these wonderful rocks along the edge of the tide line. 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.
