LOXAHATCHEE RIVER 30 © 1998
Photographic Story Jonathan Dickinson State Park, Florida – It had been several years since I had been to the Loxahatchee River. The population had grown up around the river, and I was fearful that it had impacted on the quality of the ecosystem. As I canoed down the river, I was relieved to see that the river was still in good shape. I came upon this scene and loved the way the water curved around the Strangler Fig tree embracing the cypress tree. 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.
