Documentary photographer Mary Motley Kalergis has been photographing residents of her native Charlottesville since she got her first 35 mm camera in 1970. In what she calls her "happy snaps" -- photos made just for fun -- she has captured with uncommon candor people living ordinary and extraordinary lives in this eclectic Virginia community.
