WESTON BEACH 4 © 2004
Point Lobos, CA
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. 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.
