"See Me, Hear Me,” part of Realize Bradenton's “PopUps for a Purpose” program, showcases 23 Bradenton-area millennials (men and women between the ages of 18 and 35) in black-and white-portraits. The portraits are exhibited in four spaces in downtown Bradenton through September 30 in the windows of the Bradenton Herald, Manatee Chamber of Commerce, Manatee County Administration Center and at the Downtown Bradenton offices of Fawley Bryant Architects.

Area-based photographer Dieter Tamson created portraits of hundreds of area millennials from all backgrounds and walks of life for the project. Sarasota artist Virginia Hoffman photographed Richard Brasil in the photo above. Interviews with each of the 23 subjects are featured online at

PopUps for a Purpose is a Realize Bradenton production, funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation through the Knight Cities Challenge.
