Roseberry's lens

Photographer Ed Roseberry, a man whose images constitute a powerful record of more than 50 years, was on the job at Charlottesville's 250th birthday celebration, shooting with his trusty twin lens Rollieflex.

Ed is a fantastic photographer and a fine person. I remember when he used to come to our house to take family portraits. Such memorable events because he knew how to make us feel comfortable through kindness and humor. I treasure the work that he did and thank him from the bottom of my heart.

I remember Mr Roseberry coming in Carys Camera Shop when I worked there in the 80's. Great customer and man!! Always a smile, even when his photos were late!!
