Photographic Story The Sarasota Conservation Foundation invited me to photograph some of the remaining wild coastal areas of Sarasota County. Albert Joerger, president of the group, led me through areas of Sarasota that I could not believe still existed! The Sarasota Conservation Foundation works to save areas of Sarasota along the coast before they can be developed. Thanks to them the coastal areas of Sarasota will be reality and not just a memory of what was once a beautiful coast. 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.
