Escalante Canyon 1
Photographic Story When the Wilderness Society asked me to photograph the Grand Staircase–Escalante region of Utah to help save the land from oil exploration, I readily agreed. I had a great time exploring and photographing the area. The rugged wind-blown rocks and the shadows that formed across the boulders at different times of the day made for moment-to-moment photographic opportunities. The Wilderness Society used my images to influence President Clinton to use his authority under the Antiquities Act of 1906 to make this the largest area of all the United States National Monuments. I am thankful that my images helped in preserving this magnificent place in our country. 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.
