Key Largo, FL
Photographic Story I spent a week photographing the upper Florida Bay, off Key Largo Island, to capture the final ecosystem of the Everglades. As a storm was in the midst of being created, we came to this sandbar. It made the perfect foreground for the dynamic scene forming in the sky over Florida Bay. 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.
