Ed Roseberry took up photography while serving in the Pacific during WWII. He returned to Charlottesville and graduated from UVA in 1949. While at the university, Ed began freelancing as a photographer, documenting everything: parties, parades, UVA sports , downtown storefronts, aerial views of country estates, famous musicians, visiting dignitaries, historic buildings, and notable events in Charlottesville. After retiring in Hawaii for a few years he has returned to Charlottesville to share his work with the city he knows and loves. His body of work is astounding with tens of thousands of images of Charlottesville. Throughout his career he has had numerous exhibits, won many photography awards, and has had his work featured in a wide variety of publications. “Roseberry’s Charlottesville” is a selection of photographs from Roseberry’s extensive archives and first was shown as an exhibit during Charlottesville’s 250th Anniversary. It is now a slideshow presentation co-narrated by Ed Roseberry and Steve Trumbull. Multiple versions of the show have been produced by the Charlottesville Historical Image Library and seen by hundreds in both private and public venues.
