Ctein Matrix Sale On Feb. 12 Share This on LinkedIn   Share This on Google   Tweet This   Forward This

On Feb. 12, renowned photographic printer Ctein will begin the sale of about 280 of his dye-transfer matrix sets, according to a post by Mike Johnston at The Online Photographer.

Each set of three negatives also includes a work print marked with printing notations as well as article explaining what they mean.

The matrixes became "of absolutely no use to me," Ctein explained when he dismantled his darkroom last year. He asked for suggestions about what to do with them.

Johnston continues the story:

Long and short: in response to his query, enough people said "I'd buy a set, if they aren't too expensive" that he decided his first step would be to offer the sets here, for a nominal price. So those who want a set can have one.

Details of the sale will be revealed in Ctein's regular Wednesday column at The Online Photographer but Johnston said the sale would run for five days at most or until the sets are sold.
