SMOKY MOUNTAIN 6 © 1999
Photographic Story The Great Smoky Mountain National Park in North Carolina and Tennessee is a biological wonderland. In the spring the mountains pulsate with the lush green of new life. It reverberates through my body and leaves me with such wonderful joy in the mystery of life. Every stream is filled with water, creating endless photographic opportunities. 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 fiberbase 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.
