Photographic Story I spent two weeks as Artist in Residence at the Rocky Mountain National Park. Although the rangers kept apologizing for the poor weather, I thought I was fortunate. Every day brought rolling thunderheads rolling across the mountains, which gave me dramatic skies and fresh, clean air. What else could I ask for? 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.
