SEVEN CABBAGE CUT © 1991Homossassa, FL
Photographic Story Chasahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge, Florida – This photograph was taken north of Tampa, near Homossassa Springs, while I was on a pontoon boat. Earlier, when I had tried to jump off the boat to set up my camera in the water, I landed in about two feet of water and an eternity of muck! I realized I had to photograph the scene from the boat, so I put out four anchors to hold the boat steady. But that didn’t stop the boat from moving. I had to take several photographs of this scene to achieve this one sharp image. 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.
