    I fondly remember sitting in a blues bar with Tom, during an SPE Conference, while he sipped a bourbon, listened to music, and with dry anecdotes kept us laughing till closing. Another year found us doing the same in a hotel room looking at work, talking about photography till everyone was exhausted, but exhilarated at the same time. Curators often have to put their own work aside, so as to better promote others, and to reduce conflicts of interest with their colleagues. Tom was aware of this, and was selfless in his service to photography, his students, colleagues, and the photographers whose work he exhibited. I’ll miss you Tom.
