"in the fall of 2006, noted st. louis photographer ‘mark katzman’ decided to use an obscure photographic process called ?wet plate? collodian process to photograph the people on the street outside his studio. Many of the people he photographed were on their way to or from the St. Patrick Center (a homeless shelter) just down the street. When I asked Mark about this series, he said: ?You know, I was overlooking the fact that some of the greatest faces I had ever seen were right here?walking past my studio every day.?
