Pepperwood 1
Photographic Story During the early days of our marriage, we spent our lives in northern California, where I fell in love with the ecosystem of the redwood forests. There is a power that pulsates from the redwoods, and it fills me with gratitude. One day, while taking a picture, I watched a giant tree crash to the ground. It turns out, it did make a sound and left a massive hole in the forest, allowing the sunlight to reach the forest floor. Niki and I wanted to see what the ecosystem looked like forty years after that tree had fallen, so we returned to the same spot. We found the fallen tree covered with ferns, lichens, and mushrooms. A whole new ecosystem had been created, and the tree was still in the process of returning to the earth. 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-base 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.
