ROCK ISLAND PRAIRIE © 1987
Photographic Story I had spent the day photographing in the Big Cypress National Preserve. As the day grew late, I started packing my gear into the four-wheel drive truck. I glanced up at the sky and saw a wonderful pattern of clouds filling the sky. I realized something exciting was going to happen. Quickly, I began searching for a composition so I could set up my camera. I managed to set the camera up just in time to capture this image. 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.
