KEY LARGO BUTTONWOOD © 2001
Photographic Story Buttonwood trees are a type of mangrove, but have wonderfully rugged bark that adds wonderful texture and shape to a photograph. I found this Buttonwood near Key Largo in the Florida Keys. 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.
