MATLACHA PASS © 1991
Charlotte Harbor, Florida
Photographic Story Matlacha Pass Aquatic Preserve, near Cape Coral, Florida – This photographic experience was one of the most comfortable I ever had. Niki and I saw the cloud formation forming over the still waters of Charlotte Harbor. We pulled our pontoon boat up onto a sandbank, and while I climbed out of the boat to set up the camera, Niki made breakfast. I’d take a shot of the cloud and while waiting for it to change shape, I’d have a pancake; then take another shot, followed by a pancake…and so on…. 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.
