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 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.
