    Attending the new photography exhibit at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts last Friday evening at a preview party, I learned the sad news that curator of the museum, Ted Hartwell, had passed away a few days prior.
    The MIA has a wonderful collection of photographs, and it wouldn't have been what it is without Mr. Hartwell. A kind and gentle man, I met him a couple of weeks before when I was in the office looking at some Kertesz prints.
    I will miss him, but his legacy lives in the very walls of that fine museum.

    Rest in peace.
