The Roots Of CelebriGum


CelebriGum did not spring fully-formed from the void.  No; I freely admit I'm standing on the shoulders of photographic giants.  I want to acknowledge a legendary artist whose stunning work paved the way for CelebriGum.

Thanks, Ansel Adams!  I was inspired by your starkly beautiful images of the American west and old gum.

  1. One of his most striking pieces.

    Did you know? Ansel Adams only took photographs to pass the time during his lifelong search for the Yeti.

  2. As I continue to take photographs for CelebriGum, I too am keeping an eye out for the Yeti. They've rarely been spotted north of Herald Square, though.
