Chris Rock

No less a noted photography critic than the fictitious J. Arlen Parkwood has waxed euphoric about these CelebriGum photos:

"The trio of tail light, traffic cone, and gum delineate a space that suspends the celebrity subject in a vortex of dynamic tension.  The triangular motif is brilliantly echoed in Mr. Rock's legs as well as in the Euclidean forms of the window ledge."


"The shocking addition of a second traffic cone sets up a symphonic interplay of triangles, parallelograms, and powerful diagonals.  The four points mark off a central void that hints at the alienating effects of fame. Did you see Chris Rock in "Death At A Funeral"?  Hilarious!  That bathroom scene had me laughing my ass off!"
