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 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.
