Photographic Story Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, Pennsylvania – Superintendent John Donahue of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area invited me to photograph the beauty of the park. More people visit the ‘Gap’ than visit Yosemite due to the fact that it is located about two hours outside of New York City on the Delaware River in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey. However, outside of the area few people are aware of the beauty that exists in the wonderful stretch of land that has been saved for our enjoyment. The ‘Gap’ has over 100 waterfalls and in the spring they are bursting with water creating beautiful photographic locations everywhere. Dingmans Creek is the area where the Visitor Center for the ‘Gap’ is located. It is a wonderful place to visit with several water falls and a beautiful creek tumbling by. 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.
