LOOSESCREW DEER BED
Big Cypress National Preserve, South Florida
Photographic Story This tree in our back yard has become known as the Deer Bed tree because we once found tufts of deer hair on the tree where a deer had curled up and slept in the nook of the tree. I had tried to photograph this area several times, but the light was never good and I wasn’t satisfied with the image. Finally, after several years of trying, I was fortunate to be out in the swamp with my camera when the light was right. 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.
