CLAM SHELL ORCHID 2 © 2003
Fakahatchee Strand, FL
Photographic Story The CBS Sunday Morning Program was doing a program on the orchids of Florida, so I took them into the Fakahatchee Strand with biologist Mike Owen to film the orchids. It is always so much fun to take people from New York City into the swamps of Florida and get them in touch with the REAL Florida! 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.
