Three cheers for Mark and The Saltmine!

(Egad. I'm severely tempted by "Fibonacci" myself, being a counting dork. Any Blurb/TOE link we should be aware of? :))

Hmm, the Salt Mine is banned in my place of work, on account of it being categorised as entertainment / nudity! Guess I'll have to check it out when I get home ...!

Errr....how about google reader?

"Mark's too interesting a photographer to have hewn a reputation as a major artist..."

Mike, I would love to hear a classic Mike Johnston disquisition on this toss-away line!

The rendering of light in this image is magical on my monitor (D50). I wonder how the print is.

Mark was my first photography teacher at the Corcoran School of Art in the early eighties.

He was and still is inspiring, those of you wondering what the prints look like in "real life" don't have to wonder too much - they are fantastic in both quality of image and presentation of the object itself.

It was really a great read to stumble over this this evening. Thank you

Thanks for the kind words, everybody -and of course thanks to Mike to that wonderful tribute. I never miss reading his unique blog a great mixture of information and just plain good writing ( cleverly disguised as conversation.)

It's heartening to know I've been censored,I must be doing something right!

Yes Blurb books are expensive and I'm sorry for it. Who knows, maybe one day I'll find a cheaper way of getting my work out there in book form.I justify the expense for myself by comparing the book price to the cost of having an exhibition - the book is many times cheaper. And more permanent.

Now that I think about it, I've only printed that carousel image once. I have to say the print is inferior to the monitor image which might be expected given the latter is viewed via transmitted light and the former reflected light. Maybe I should go the Jeff Wall route and do a light box

Finally good to hear from a former student -hey, Matt hope everything is going well for you.

Mark
