My mom still talks about the time he left a May basket on our doorstep back in kindergarten because she thought it was so sweet. And as I write this, I’m suddenly recalling Tom was the very first boy I danced with – at somebody’s Bar Mitzvah party in junior high. Wow. I can see myself in that very moment – swaying to an 80s tune in a dimly-lit hotel party room. I remember feeling relieved that he was an old and kind-hearted friend, which allowed me to have that first boy-girl dance free of sweaty palms and nervous giggles.
Tom hopes these microgrants will give new voice to a community of artists who haven’t yet had a chance to tell us their stories and share their views through the lens of a camera. “We will learn more about the world,” Tom says, “and have our vision broadened by the work of those we support as photographers through the site.”
I’m so happy I can do my small part to help an old friend and spread the word about Fototazo. I know many of you readers are artists, photographers, writers and daydream believers…so I hope you’ll all check it out and pass it along to others!
