DRIFTWOOD 11 © 1970
Photographic Story If you enjoy photographing driftwood, the Oregon coast is the place for you. There are giant trees that have been thrown up onto the beach that have been bleached white by the sun. The selection of driftwood is overwhelming! Driftwood 11, Oregon Coast. Clyde took this photo in 1970 with Mamiya Press 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 medium format camera. He used DandyPan roll-film that he could process his self. At that time DandyPan cost 75 cents a roll and it was very good film. Good tonal range & not much grain. For a young starving artist, this was perfect. 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.
