    Jan Pietrzak’s passing.

    I’m sorry to be so late with this. It has been really hard since it happened. I thought someone else would have posted something but a search turned up nothing.

    Our dear friend Jan Pietrzak passed away 12 days ago. This is a huge loss to his wife Gale, me and my wife Victoria, his many friends and the photo community as a whole. He will be sincerely missed. Jan was an extraordinary friend who would do anything for them. He was a noted photographer and photographic educator here in NM and California. He was a dedicated large format film photographer and platinum printer. We loved him. He will be sincerely missed and very fondly remembered.

    Rest In Peace Jan. You were the best. Our condolences to Gale.

    For Gale, I had the initial, unenviable but necessary, task of calling many of his close friends and colleagues with the sad news the morning of his death. He was to come home that day for hospice and we were heading up there. He didn’t make it home. It still seems very unreal.
    He had a very long relationship with Freestyle both as an advisor and friend. He will be missed.
    Thanks,

    There will be memorials in both Santa Fe and in California. These have not been scheduled yet.
    Thanks,
