Myakka River State Park, Sarasota
Photographic Story Myakka River State Park, Florida – Now that we have added a second location for my gallery and studio in Venice, I am finding the opportunity to explore the Myakka State Park. For a good portion of the summer Myakka was submerged under an abundance of water, making it a wet wonderland of tropical splendor. However, the abundance of water forced the park to close its gates. Fortunately, Ranger Paula was kind enough to drive me around in the park jeep to many unique locations. Everywhere I looked I found great photographs…truly a beautiful place. 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.
