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 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.
