Arches National Park, Utah
Photographic Story Arches National Park, Utah – Most people photograph close-up scenes of the stone monuments within the park, but I wanted to give the feeling of the entire environment, so I stepped back and shot an overall scene. The park is visually stunning in its starkness, especially comparing it to the green ecosystem of Florida. I found photographic opportunities everywhere I looked! 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.
