JOSHUA TREE 1 © 2010California
Photographic Story My teenage years were spent in California, living in a town near Joshua Tree. At that time, it was a state park. When I heard it had become a national park, I was thrilled and excited to return for a visit. It was good to see that it was just as “Dr. Seusswondrous” as it had always been. Those trees are amazingly bizarre, and with all the wind-worn, rounded boulders, the area is inspirational to photograph. I like to think the park may have inspired Dr. Seuss as well. 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.
