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.
