Fernandina Beach, Florida
Photographic Story The wonderful shape of these wind-blown trees demanded that I take a photograph! The shape and texture against the dark background was extraordinary. It reminded me of the windblown cypress trees along the Pacific coast of Monterrey, and I felt a sudden homesickness for the coast of California. Analog – Archival Silver Gelatin Photograph Clyde’s silver gelatin black and white images are created using an 8”x10”, 11”x14”, or 12”x20” view camera. Clyde prints his images in his own darkroom on fiberbase 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”x10” inches to 5’x8’ feet. His love of art and nature is seen in the exceptional detail and more subtle textures of his photography.
