CAYO COSTA ISLAND 2 © 1988
Barrier Island, Gulf Coast
Photographic Story Cayo Costa Island is one of my favorite places in Florida. I always enjoy taking our boat over to the island for a few days of relaxation and photography. On this trip we traveled to the south end of the island where we found some wonderful driftwood. The day was perfect…no clouds in the sky. That meant that when I put my red filter onto my lens the sky would be a nice black background for the sculptural sun-bleached driftwood. 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.
