Badlands 1
Photographic Story We were only in the Badlands for twenty-four hours, but what a glorious time it was! A violent storm ripped rapidly through the area bringing with it a constantly changing sky. I photographed like crazy trying to capture the sunlight reaching the landscape as the sun popped in and out of the dark storm clouds. It is a beautiful spot. Miles of wind-blown prairie grass added great textures to the foreground. In the distance, sculptural buttes, pinnacles, and spires looked a bit like miniature castles. On this particular morning, the sun began to break through a slit in the clouds, illuminating the mountains in the foreground against the backdrop of dark storm clouds. Niki and I jumped out of the car and set up the camera as quickly as we could. We captured the scene just before the clouds covered up the sun. 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-based 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.
