After reading your comments on our post about him the other day, Mark Surloff completely revamped his website to make it much easier to navigate. It's now split into four screens with 24–39 images per screen with one-click navigation—plus there's a "Page Flip" feature that shows the pictures in virtual book form. Take a look.
I'm also pleased to report that T.O.P. has entered into negotiations in principle to publish a book of Mark's work. We've already spoken to Mark, raised an initial $2,000, and have a handshake agreement with a very good book publisher who specializes in top-quality reproduction. We're in the early stages; more news as plans progress.

Rob Morris: "Maybe in time for Christmas?"
Mike replies: No, but maybe by Spring.
Matt Greer: "Mark's pictures are terrific—I really enjoyed them. One thing that sticks out for me in his photos, as well as those of some others, is that I don't feel the contrast is pushed to the max. I have this urge whenever I attempt to make an image in B&W (even colour images) to get a point as close to white as possible, and a point as close to black as possible, and work the curves to really enhance the mid-tone contrast. I don't mean to suggest that these images lack the necessary contrast— they don't. I feel like Mark used an appropriate amount of restraint in adding contrast to his images. Maybe it wasn't restraint—maybe it didn't cross his mind to push everything up to 11, and maybe that's why he's been able to create to many excellent images. I clearly have much to learn, and will spend much more time enjoying and studying Mark's work."
David Paterson: "Lovely, lovely work. The kind of pictures that make me want to go out and take pictures."
