Mount Rainier National Park, Washington
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.
