Ansel Adams' First Image
A Historical and Amazing Find
My name is Sergio Romero and with great respect to Mr. Ansel Adams, I would like to share what I believe is Ansels' very first image (print). I obtained this print at an estate sale in the spring of 2011 in the city of Pocatello, Idaho where I reside. After researching the image I learned that the print is indeed an enormous contribution to the world of photography and a grand historical find. Amazingly, it has Ansels' teenage signature, one that has never been seen on any of Ansels' prints. The size of this print is shocking and will astound the world. I invite the media and all who have loved and enjoyed the works of Ansel Adams to check out my face-book as Ansels' first image unfolds to the world. I am honored to be the one that unearthed this rare piece of history therefore, I feel extremly obligated to this image and would like to see it reach its original destiny, for the world to enjoy. I am prepared to release this print to the experts for the authentication process and hope to soon see it placed in a gallery or museum. I refer to this image as, 'Ansels' First Image'. The image is of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, USA; An image that has never been seen before by the public. Yes, Ansel Adams' first image has finally revealed itself to us all. Join me as I continue to update this site daily that you may injoy this miracle image created by the grand photographer himself Mr. Ansel Adams.
Thank you very much,
Sergio R Romero
