BLOWING ROCKS 10 © 1994
Photographic Story Blowing Rocks Preserve, Jupiter – The majority of beaches in Florida are white sand, so when I heard that there was a beach in Florida with large rocks, I was curious to see what it was like. I was surprised to see that it resembled so many of the beaches that are on the west coast of the U.S.A. I had a great time photographing…it took me back to my days on the beaches of California. 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.
