AGAWAMUCK CREEK FALLS 3 © 2006
Photographic Story High Falls Conservation Area in Hudson, New York – My favorite period of art is the Hudson Bay period. I love the paintings from that era showing the romantic beauty of the earth. I have always wanted to photograph along the Hudson, but when I tried to find a place to shoot all I could find was man-made scenery. When I told the Columbia Land Conservancy Trust in Chatham New York about my dilemma, they helped me to find the natural landscape in the area. Thanks to them I was able to photograph this beautiful little waterfall. 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.
