Yes Judy you are correct, "pigment print" was the wording used.
My faux pas. It was late and violent thunder storms were rolling through my
neighborhood so I mis-remembered the wording. :~)

Part of my curiousity was due to seeing prints in other exhibits categorized
(described) as pigment prints and it was never clear to me what that meant.
I vaguely surmised that they were some kind of carbon print.

Now that Sandy (and others) have explained the pigment print process my
ephiphany has occured.

I've not seen an actual Sudek, only a cheap reproducton, but even so they
are very compelling for me to look at, the word sublime does come to mind
for me too.

Thanks Judy(and to everyone that replied),
