Photographic Story Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, Boynton Beach, Florida – The fight to save the Everglades began at the Loxahatchee Wildlife Refuge, and so when I went there to photograph I was looking for an image that I felt represented my feelings of what the Everglades looks like. The clouds, a distant tree hammock, water, grass, and water lilies, all represented my feelings for the Everglades. 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.
