LOXAHATCHEE WILDLIFE REFUGE 1 © 1999

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. Each photograph is individually hand printed in the darkroom and will vary based on factors such as artist preference, chemistry and temperature. The image displayed on the website is a digital scan of the original negative and should be considered a representation of the printed version of the art.
