IF THERE’S EVER A GOOD REASON TO BUY A BOOK, THIS IS THE REASON OF ALL REASONS. ROME TORTI’S DREAM WAS TO RELEASE A BOOK SHOWCASING HIS PHOTOGRAPHIC WORK OVER HIS MANY YEARS IN SKATEBOARDING. AND HERE IT IS.
The man behind the lens was one of the nicest guys you’ll meet, always had a smile and had an incredible eye for shooting skateboarding. Unfortunately Rome recently lost his five year battle with brain cancer, leaving behind son Ryder and wife Rachel. As you can imagine hospital bills weren’t cheap and Rachel and Rome basically sold everything to fight the cancer. So they now need your help. If you’re on the Gold Coast tomorrow night head down to Miami Marketta to help raise some much needed funds for Ryder and Rachel.
If you can’t make it to the event on Wednesday night, that’s ok, you can support them by buying a copy of Hello Friend or a limited edition Rome deck from Element right here. It’s the season to give, so why not give to those who need it. R.I.P Rome.
