Mr Roman Buxbaum does appear very often as the discoverer, rescuer and promoter of Tichy.

BTW the prints on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney appear, as best as can be ascertained behind glass, to be on fibre based paper (they have the characteristic curl, albeit slight), so he's not that naive, or perhaps the rats ate all the resin coated ones.

BTW whoever mentioned him in the same sentence as Sudek will please wash their mouth out!
