Photographic Story I had been casually walking along the beach when I saw this log that had been washed up. It sat there all alone and seemed to look like a lonely animal of some kind. I decided to accentuate the loneliness by taking a long exposure, which would make the waves and the clouds become soft against the hard edges of the log. When I printed the image I liked the feeling of the contrast between soft and hard and was very satisfied with how it turned out. 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.
