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.
