Everglades National Park
Photographic Story I was working with the South Florida Water Management District to produce a series of photographs for the Fort Lauderdale International Airport. The focus was to present a collection of images that embodied pristine areas of the Everglades to people that may not travel there. The water was so pure in this area everything flourished; the ecosystem seemed to present itself for a portrait — as the clouds aligned I clicked the shutter. 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.
