Moonrise 4
Photographic Story This was the first photograph Clyde took after the death of his son, Ted, who, at 17 years old, was killed by a drunk driver in 1986. Out of Clyde’s sorrow came the light of seeing the world around him in a different way. In his time of grief, Clyde disappeared for days at a time into the Everglades. He seemed to become one with the land. This time spent in nature brought him to the turning point in his career. Realizing color photography was not his passion, and it was not expressing what he felt, Clyde decided life was short, and if he wanted to do black and white, he should at least try.

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.
