LOOSESCREW GATOR © 1996
Big Cypress Gallery
Photographic Story This guy is the resident gator of the pond in my backyard. Why is he called Loosescrew Gator? Well, when I bought the property in the middle of the Big Cypress National Preserve to build my gallery and home, a friend said I had to have a screw loose to build so far away from civilization. So, I called my property the Loosescrew Sanctuary…and this impressive creature became the Loosescrew Gator. 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.
