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.
