Photographic Story When I saw this mangrove sitting all alone surrounded by crystal clear water, the simplicity of the image attracted me to the scene. The transparency of the water accentuates the importance of clean water to the Florida Keys. We have a beautiful heritage in water surrounding the Florida Keys; let’s keep it that way for future generations. 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.
