LOXAHATCHEE RIVER 3
Jonathan Dickinson State Park, Florida
Photographic Story I spent three years photographing the Loxahatchee River before I felt like I had captured the essence of the river. One day two things happened: the light was right, and I decided to swim my canoe down the river, not paddle it. I became one with the river. It seemed I saw photographic opportunities everywhere I looked. It was a wonderful and exciting day, resulting in many images. 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.
