With their rapid departure from the landscape, you begin to appreciate them more. all the more reason to own a Selyem print. I relish viewing mine every day in my office.

ruddell Bruce is an artist, and many of his photographs are just striking. some depict history in passing, and so there's a poignant sadness to them. But the images also reveal how genuinely grain buildings seem to fit into their surroundings. Bruce must have recognized the beauty and importance of those relationships -- grain elevators and great plains -- because he's made it his life's work is to capture them on film and show them to others. Bruce is an original on a mission, and his landscapes are uniquely powerful.
Chuck House, The Grain Elevator & Processing Society, Minneapolis, MN

As I sit among the artificial valleys created by the buildings of the windy city, I cherish the "view" through my photo of the prairie and the grain elevator from Acme, MT standing in serene solitude.

Bruce Selyem is by trade a professional photographer, an outsider looking in on our nostalgic grain elevator history. We owe him a great deal in that through his grain elevator photography he has awakened in us respect for those in whose footsteps we are walking.

I can't tell you how much we at Essmueller have enjoyed the three feed mill prints purchased for our offices. Every customer that has visited our plant has stopped and asked about the pictures. They enjoy looking at a piece of our feed milling history. The best part about it is we can enjoy them everyday. You and Bruce are doing a great service for our industry. Keep it up and best of luck in the future.
Bill and Pat Mclean, the Essmueller Company, Laurel, Mississippi

We have purchased several Selyem prints for our office and have received many compliments on their beauty. It is important to preserve the history and what can be the beauty of the country elevator. Thank you for your dedication and talent to saving these treasures.

Bruce treats old crib elevators as one would treat a waif. If he could take them home his house would be full of them. But he can't so he lovingly captures them in his magnificent photos.
