I had a nice email from Mark Citret correcting me on the fact that his prints on the Buy It Now Wall are not platinum/palladium but to quote Mark “good old silver gelatin”. We don’t want to disappoint a collector of Mark’s incredible work with the wrong information. It is worth your time to go and see the exhibit and acquire one of Mark’s images while they last. I missed some other news about Mark.
