Bob Gomel's 80th Birthday Photo Montage

September 3, 2013 | Source: Monroe Gallery of Photography

A video that took 80 years to make. The LIFE and times of my father, Photographer BOB GOMEL. If he is not in the photo, he took the photo.

My dad was born (1933) and raised in New York City. After serving in the Navy, he began working for LIFE in 1959, producing many memorable images. When LIFE ceased being a weekly in the early 1970s, he began taking photographs for other major magazines. Also in the 1970s, he branched out into advertising photography.
