The tragedy of the bombings at the 2013 Boston Marathon left all of us in Boston at a loss. The six degrees of separation were shattered as we spoke to friends and neighbors only to find that every family was touched in some way. Either by knowing someone who was injured or killed or who was involved with the capture of the bombers.
I was totally lost as to how would I help? My Daughter came up with the idea of a PhotoThon – an event where we would photograph people in Boston team sports gear or clothing for a donation and then all the money would go directly to the One Fund Boston ( this is the fund that was set up immediately after the marathon by Boston’s Mayor Menino and Governor Patrick). My Daughter and her husband (who are professional photographers based in Beverly Hills, CA) would hold an event there and I would hold mine here in Boston on the same day.
It happened! and was a huge success.
Here are a few of the images from the Boston event.
