ST. JOE DRAGON © 2003
Photographic Story St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, Florida – The sky had become overcast making the weather perfect for photographing the interior of the area. Niki and I were wandering around and came across this wonderful piece of dead wood sitting in a soft spongy growth of lichen. The contrast between the rough and the soft was exciting to me, so I took the picture. It wasn’t until I got home and developed the film that I realized I had photographed a dragon! 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.
