H E L L E E G R A H A M - Photographer
Just like Route 66, Shellee Grahamıs work is enjoying
ever-increasing popularity among US 66 enthusiasts who attend her
exhibitions and among art collectors who have discovered her work.
Since 1990, this St. Louis photographer has traveled the length of
this venerable highway. Her self-appointed mission was to preserve
the old diners, motels, people and gas stations on film before they
were destroyed. Her first Route 66 exhibit was in 1992 and this
showing is a continuation of that initial exhibit.
Graham is also the author and photographer of two books: ³Return to
Route 66,² a postcard book (Council Oak Books, Tulsa, 1998) and
³Tales from the Coral Court: Photos and Stories from a Lost Route
66 Landmark,² (Virginia Publishing, St. Louis, 2000). For ³Tales...²
she received the Route 66 Magazine ³Book of the Year² Award in
2002, and received a CALOP* grant to complete a video documentary
about the Coral Court Motel.
Shellee has worked as a courtroom artist, graphic designer, fashion
illustrator and as an art director. She lives with her family less
than a mile from Bypass Route 66 in Maryland Heights, Missouri. For
