Our PhotoFair Community has lost two of our own this past few months. I’d like to take a moment and say a few words about these men that had significant connections to the show.
It is with great sadness that I bring word of the passing of Clarence Towers. He succumbed to pneumonia on January, 2nd. Clarence has been a wonderful member of our regular exhibitors. He was a true champion of the art of photography, was involved in photography both professionally and personally for as long as I knew him dating back to the 1990s as I recall. Clarence was well liked by everyone at the PhotoFair and his presence will be missed with each new show. You can visit his website, the family is retaining for a memorial. www.clarencetowers.com.
Clarence was born, August 4th, 1943.
On March, 21st the original founder of the PhotoFair camera show, Dave Cox passed away at the age of 82. He started this very series of shows back in 1975 and operated the show through the heyday of the 1980s and 1990s. Dave built the show up to become the largest camera show/swap events on the West Coast with people literally traveling from all over the world to attend. He retired from show promotion in the late 1990s.
Dave was born, October 10th, 1938
