KEY BISCAYNE BAY 4 © 1997
Photographic Story When Joe Hoyt invited me to spend the day with him out on the crystal clear turquoise water of Biscayne Bay, how could I say no? We had a fun time dashing around in his boat looking for photographic opportunities. When we found one I’d jump over the side, Niki would hand me my gear and I’d walk over to where I wanted to be to take the photo. The mud was thick everywhere I entered the water. I almost got stuck so many times that I finally figured out the secret to getting unstuck – turn like a corkscrew and it allows water into the hole and loosens the mud. 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 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” 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.
