Three Elephants
Photographic Story After spending time as an Artist-in-Residence in the Rocky Mountain National Park, we drove over the “hill” and visited the Arches. As you may imagine, it was a very different environment compared to the green of the Rocky Mountains, but it was very stimulating to the eye. The shapes, textures, and shadows made for incredible photographic opportunities, but we were not prepared for the over one hundred degree temperatures, so we didn’t stay very long. Most people take close-ups of the arches, but I wanted to give the viewer a greater sense of the surrounding area, so I framed a view that encompasses the sky, plants, and odd shapes that make up the environment of Three Elephants. 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.
