    In 1968 the National Film Board gave Shelly an assignment: to photograph children and youth in Toronto, the city in which he grew up. This led to becoming the photographer for the Ontario Department of Education Youth Branch. The photos were never published and after decades spent in a shoe box, the negatives were finally contacted, printed in a darkroom, and archivally processed in 2003-2004. This is the first public exhibition of these historic photographs. “It’s sweet to look back at all the kids, poor and not so poor, waifs and elegant young gallants with their girlfriends. It is touching to see the innocence and openness of the youth of those days. Not a cell phone in sight…” – Shelly Grimson
