North Creek, NY, Jul 17, 2009 — A poem by Adirondack resident Miriam Kashiwa inspired photographer Carl Heilman and musician Dan Berggren to collaborate on a multi-media production that premieres in North Creek on Sunday night. "I am the Adirondacks" uses spoken words, images and music to celebrate the region's beauty. The event is a benefit for musician Dan Duggan, who's battling cancer. Todd Moe spoke with Carl Heilman and Dan Berggren about the production. Heilmann says it began with Miriam Kashiwa's poem.
