Photographic Story I had seen this old mangrove – which survived Hurricane Donna in the 1960s – several times while taking photographs in the Ten Thousand Islands. It expresses the lonely, primeval feeling that I love to experience in the wilderness. I had been stuck by the sculptural beauty of this mangrove before, but the light had not been right for me to take a photograph. Finally, one summer morning, everything came together and I was able to capture this image. Unfortunately, when Hurricane Andrew hit South Florida in 1992, this mangrove was destroyed. 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.
