Mark was my friend , mentor, fellow collector and guiding light. I can not begin to imagine how much I owe him and how much I am going to miss him. He never knew how much he meant to me. He will forever be a piece of me. My best wishes to his family and friends.

I am so sorry for your loss and know that it will be hard to bear. Such a warm and generous spirit, kind, generous and inspiring. It was my privilege to know him and share his passion for colour photography. I treasure having known him and I know that is so small compared to all the wonderful memories you will cherish that will never leave you,

Mark was also my friend for an unimaginable amount of years. When I spoke to him last, Hannah's family was in the US visiting and that must have been such a comfort to him. I just can't imagine not talking about politics, photography, Chicago, and of course family. I am crushed to lose such a caring, sweet, always loyal friend. I am so sorry Hannah. He loved you so much. Your dad was so talented, so brilliant and so unique and such an asset to the photography world. I feel lucky to have had him as my friend.

I am deeply saddened by the loss of Mark. I have known him since 2007 and he has been a friend and professional mentor that I relied on for help. His encyclopedic knowledge and kind nature are unparalleled. He will be greatly missed. My deep condolences to Hannah and family.
