Home > CONTEMPORARY ART > Unique Offer in Fine Art Photography

From time to time on our website, we are thrilled to offer collectors, friends and fellow art lovers, a chance to purchase two never-before-printed images by one of our distinguished Gallery artists at a discounted price, prior to its availability within the general market place.

This month, we are offering two very limited platinum/palladium prints by Mark Citret: "Vernal Fall from Sierra Point," and "Nevada and Vernal Fall from Washburn Point." While Mark's original palladium prints normally sell in this size up to $1,400, you can now add one to your private collection for 25% off the initial retail price. Each photograph is made by Mr. Citret in his darkroom, printed to current archival standards, signed, as well as mounted, matted and ready for framing. Both will be made only in a small edition of 12. The time to purchase will begin at 9:00 AM Pacific Time on Monday, June 18th and will expire upon the close of business, Sunday, June 24th at 6:00 PM. Once the offer has expired, we anticipate an order fulfillment time of approximately four to six weeks to ensure the quality of each individual order. This inaugural printing offer is available for a very limited time, after which, the print will return to full price.

Email our curator, Evan Russel, at evan@anseladams.com if you have any additional questions about the prints or shipping.

The Story of These Images

In May of 2016, courtesy of Yosemite Renaissance, I was granted a Yosemite residency to spend two weeks in the park with no responsibilities other than to make the photographs of my own choosing. The two photographs in this special print offering were both made during that generous residency. Neither has been printed before now. I have chosen to print them in the platinum/palladium process because it offers a unique blend of both delicacy and depth of tonality. It also happens to be the most archivally stable of all printing processes.

Nevada and Vernal Fall, from Washburn Point

I have always felt that the views from Washburn Point rival those from its better known neighbor, Glacier Point. This view, looking east over Vernal and Nevada Falls and along the Little Yosemite Valley all the way up to the Clark Range, is one of my favorite views in Yosemite.

Vernal Fall from Sierra Point

My residency happened to coincide with an exhibit of wonderful paintings by James McGrew at the Ansel Adams Gallery. One of them was a view of Vernal Falls from Sierra Point. I recalled hiking to Sierra Point decades before, but realized that I hadn’t seen the trail, or any signs for it, for many years. Turns out it had been closed because of rock slides, and was no longer marked on any park maps. My thanks to Evan Russel of the Ansel Adams Gallery, who gave me detailed instructions on how to find the point where the trail once began. After scrambling past the rockslide that had closed the trail, it was a strenuous hike (especially with camera gear), but the trail, though no longer maintained, was relatively easy to follow. This view of the Vernal Falls, with the morning sun lighting its springtime plume of mist, made the hike well worthwhile.
