Photographic Story Jonathan Dickinson State Park, Florida – As I stood in the water, waiting for the right light to take this photograph, I was suddenly petrified to see what looked like a torpedo coming toward me! I thought a gator was heading, full speed, toward me and I wondered what I could do. When the wake finally reached me, it turned out to be a playful otter! Boy, was I relieved! He swam around me in a curious fashion, and then went on his way. 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.
