CASEY KEY RAINBOW © 2011
Barrier Island, Venice, FL
Photographic Story The Sarasota Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast invited me to be their first Artist in Residence. I spent two weeks rambling around taking photos of my own desire and also joined them on some trips to some of the properties they have saved. While we were driving around Casey Key looking for photographic opportunities, we received a sprinkling of “sunshine rain” (rain & sunshine at the same time). We knew a rainbow was near and went in search. By the time we found a composition the rain had moved off shore, however we were lucky enough to capture this rainbow in the distance. 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.
