Big Cypress National Preserve, Florida
Photographic Story A tropical depression had move back and forth across South Florida for almost two months inundating us with an abundance of rain. It was so wet that when winter came we could still canoe through the grassy plains of the Everglades. Having enough water to canoe through the saw grass during the winter is very rare. It certainly made photography easier, the canoe carried by photo gear instead of having it on my back! 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.
