CORKSCREW SUNFLOWERS © 2009
Photographic Story Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, Naples, Florida – After experiencing the profusion of sunflowers at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, Mary Wozniak was convinced that I needed to see it too. She made arrangements with Ed Carlson, Director of Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, and off we all went into the depths of Corkscrew to experience this explosion of flowers that happens only once every 3-4 years. Sixty acres of sunflowers arched toward the sun stretching to between 6-10 feet tall. I was speechless. The beauty was as though Mary had invited me to join her in heaven. 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.
