Clyde Keller is an important Pacific Northwest photographer and is celebrated for his images of a range of subject matter principally from Oregon, Washington and British Columbia.
Clyde makes his own Fine Art Giclee (inkjet) prints or fade resistant Fuji Crystal Archive (photographic) prints from his original negatives which he processed in his darkroom or from digital files which he has processed (electronically) to then be offered for sale as prints.
Clyde is known internationally for his historic photographs of Robert F. Kennedy. His RFK images are featured in Rory Kennedy's documentary film, "ETHEL" which debuted at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. The RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights has recently acquired key images from Clyde's RFK portfolios for their collection.
In the Fall of 2015 Clyde's 1973 images of Migrant Farm laborers were featured at the Washington County Museum's show, "The Changing face of Poverty." His images were presented as wall hanging 24x36 inch giclee art prints.
Historic photos of author Ken Kesey, William Burroughs and actor Bill Murray are featured in Mark Christensen's book Acid Christ.
Clyde's portrait of actor/director Warren Beatty is the cover photo for Peter Biskind's, Star.
Several vintage documentary images appear in a new NFL films project, entitled, "Fearsome Foursome" as well as Dan Forrer's HBO documentary film centering on the birth of Hip Hop music.
The Seattle Museum of History and Science now features his vintage Seattle skyline panoramas.
His regional portraits of surviving pioneer families (and characters) appear in several new books, periodicals and webzines, including Ken Bilderback's, Creek with No Name, a new soft cover about the history of Cherry Grove, Oregon.
Clyde is the grandson of Clyde Leon Keller, (1872-1962) an important Oregon-based Plein-Air Impressionist Painter.
