FAKAHATCHEE CATHEDRAL 2 © 2009
Photographic Story This image was taken during the filming of Elam Stoltzfus’s documentary, Big Cypress Swamp – The Western Everglades. Elam, Rick Cruz, John Brady, and I headed out into Fakahatchee to do both filming and photography. Just as we entered the swamp Rick and I both saw this image at once and set up our cameras to capture the wonderful shape of this tree. 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.
