FACTORY FALLS 34 © 2006
Photographic Story Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area – I was invited to be Artist in Residence at the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and I spent my time exploring this wonderful park. I felt like I was in the middle of the wilderness miles from anyone, when in reality I was surrounded by masses of people and only a 2 ½ hr. drive from New York City! I found Factory Falls at George W. Childs Park high above the valley. It had recently been added to the park property, so I was excited to photograph the location. At the time I was there the park had built a boardwalk that followed the river as it dropped into waterfalls all the way down the mountainside and into the valley where the park was located. It was a beautiful, but sometimes wet walk. I spent two days photographing Factory Falls, but I could have spent my entire time in that area. It was truly beautiful. 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.
