Big Cypress Gallery
Photographic Story I am often asked, while in my gallery, where is a good place in Big Cypress to photograph? When I reply, “My parking lot”, some folks are insulted, but then I just figure they don’t have their eyes open. This image is taken from the parking lot in front of our gallery. Beauty is everywhere, you just have to open your eyes. 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.
