Fine Art Landscape and Still Life Photography

Cranson Weber Shelley

Cranson Weber Shelley was my great grandfather on my mother's side. He came from Ontario Canada and settled in Syracuse, New York where worked as a toolmaker. His photographs were purely for his own pleasure and relaxation. I discovered a collection of his glass plate negatives after my grandmother died. I was immediately struck by the simple compositions, elegant light, and subjects. His still life photos of flowers communicated to me and I think they will communicate to you as well.
