Mark Citret has been a photographer and photo educator for over 40 years, specializing in architectural and landscape photography. His work is represented in prominent galleries and in the collections of major museums across the US. In the 1970s he lived and photographed for 2 years in upstate New York, creating a body of work published in the book Halcott Center: a Catskill Mountain Valley, with an introduction by Ansel Adams. His other books are a retrospective monograph: Along the Way (with an introduction by Ruth Bernhard), a Monterey Museum catalogue: Signs Taken for Wonder, and most recently Parallel Landscapes, photographs of a huge construction site in the southwest corner of San Francisco done from1990 to 1993. He recently completed a 16 year commission from the University of California San Francisco, documenting the construction of their Mission Bay biotech campus and new hospital complex. From 1982 to 2008 he taught photography at both UC Berkeley and UC Santa Cruz Extensions, and now teaches workshops for the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite and for Rayko Photo Center in San Francisco.
