Марк Ситрет родился в 1949 году в Буффало, штат Нью-Йорк, а вырос в Сан-Франциско. Он начал фотографировать серьезно в 1968 году. В течение многих лет он был преподавателем в университете и в различных известных фотографических мастерских. Он также делает коммерческие фотографии архитектуры . Его работы представлены в ряде крупных галерей и музейных коллекций по всей стране.

Citret has worked on many photographic projects over the course of his career, and continues to do so. From 1973 to 1975 he lived in and photographed Halcott Center, a farming valley in New York’s Catskill Mountains. In the mid to late 1980s he produced a large body of work with the working title of “Unnatural Wonders”, which is his personal survey of architecture in the national parks. He spent four years, 1990 to 1993, photographing “Coastside Plant”, a massive construction site in the southwest corner of San Francisco. Since he moved to his current home in Daly City, California in 1986, he has been photographing the ever changing play of ocean and sky from the cliff behind his house. Currently he is in the midst of a multi-year commission from the University of California San Francisco, photographing the construction of their 43 acre Mission Bay life-sciences campus.
