Big Cypress Gallery12
Photographic Story Not many people have the opportunity to live within a national park or preserve, although many of us have spent extended amounts of time visiting them. Niki and I had the unique opportunity to purchase thirteen acres in the middle of over a million acres of wilderness in Big Cypress Preserve in 1992. Life had dealt our family a terrible blow with the loss of our son, Ted, and Big Cypress became our sanctuary where we could find peace amongst the wondrous mystery of the swamp. Our experience of living in Big Cypress made us understand how essential it is to take care of our planet and all the precious life within it. This world is a beautiful, life-saving gift to us; let’s save it together. There are no alternatives; there is no Planet B. 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.
