HOH RAIN FOREST 2 © 1998Olympic National Park, WA
Photographic Story Niki and I headed to the Washington coast and Olympic National Park on a mission to photograph coastal images. Our goal was to photograph big waves in the Pacific Ocean, but instead, we decided to check out the Hoh Rainforest. The high humidity mixed with the cool temperatures made it quite comfortable, and we stayed for the next several days. We were so fascinated by the rain forest that we only spent one day photographing the Pacific Ocean. The smells and lush green reminded me of Florida swamps. 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.
