MT. RAINIER © 2013
Photographic Story Visiting Mt. Rainier was a very moving experience. The energy surrounding the volcano is the same kind of feeling I get when I’m in the Redwood Forest, or in the primeval swamps of Florida. It’s a feeling of time before time. An ancient feeling that touches my soul and makes me humble before the power of what has gone on before. It’s a feeling that is very hard to describe, so forgive my lack of words. 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.
