The HOME 66 is also a small art gallery, presenting the works of recognized American photographers, graphic designers and artists creating their artworks on Route 66. These artists exclusively provided some of their works for our purpose, and thus significantly contributed to the promotion of Route 66 in Europe. 
HOME 66 is also the basis for the planned European Route 66 Museum, which is being built with the support of official U.S. Route 66 organizations and individuals.


Jim Hinckley was born in North Carolina but he is a product of the desert southwest with its vast, panoramic landscapes where spires of weathered stone cast long shadows under cloudless skies. For more than forty years he has explored its hidden places, hungered for its colorful history, wandered Route 66 across the deserts of New Mexico, Arizona, and California, and sought the road less traveled across the stark plains.
These adventures and a fascination for the history or America's most famous highway, as well as the automobiles that traveled it are the foundational elements of his published work. This includes more than one thousand feature articles for various magazines and newspapers, and eight books.
In addition, he and his wife are also photographers with a lengthy and colorful resume of work appearing in magazines and books, on corporate websites, in a wide array of promotional material, and in their gallery at the Brunswick Hotel in Kingman, Arizona

Christopher Robleski is an American Photographer who loves to travel the back roads of the United States in search of history and culture.
Along the way he finds and captures abandoned structures before they collapse back into the earth. There is no computer-manipulation used in his photographs. Chris ventures out into the dark of night. He uses the full moon to expose the outside and colored flashes to light the inside of buildings and cars. Every location is an adventure and every photograph is a unique glimpse at places long forgotten.


Frank Gifford began exploring the Mother Road and related interests after the year 2000.
In a video-dominated world where images jump, twitch and jiggle (but almost never linger) he prefers a still photograph that provides a License to Stare.
19 of the Mother Road images are also at the Route 66 Interpretive Center in Chandler OK.Rt 66 Pix makes for a convenient trade name (and a snappy URL) but the actual scope of the site is much broader. Perhaps one-third of the images were taken elsewhere. Separate galleries are devoted to artistic blur, street photography and other interests.
