FAKAHATCHEE STRAND 3 © 1999
Photographic Story Sloshing around through the lush green summer swamps of Florida fills me with a deep joy of being alive. There is something primeval about it. With mysterious names of plants like Guzmania and Ghost Orchid, I was easily enticed into exploring the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park. Studded with native Royal Palms and many tropical plants found only in Central America, the Fakahatchee is truly a remarkable place. 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.
