JOSHUA TREE 4 © 2012California
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. Digital – Archival Pigment Print This photograph was taken with an analog large format camera. After Clyde develops the negative, the film is scanned and edited in a computer program mimicking his darkroom techniques. The photograph is printed on an Epson Stylus 4800 or 11880 printer. Clyde uses archival Ultra-chrome K3 ink and prints on archival Harman Hahnemuhle paper. The limited-edition photograph is then mounted and matted to current archival standards. This is a limited edition series and each photograph is numbered.
