Tomaž Humar remains to be an inspiration
I’ve met him only once at IPAK agency in year 1999 when he was making a selection of his images with Bojan Brecelj. I remember vividly the energy that he was radiating and how strong handshake did he had. Later I heard an anecdote that once he had a meeting with a potential sponsor from Germay and when he shook a hand of a wife of this potential sponsor, he broke a bone in her palm. Obviously he didn’t won sponsorship of this man. I’m not sure if it’s true, but I heard it as I’ve told you.
Anyway his book Ni nemogočih poti and his path remain an inspiration to me. I’m training martial arts (in recreational purposes), but nevertheless I’ve train every single day for at least an hour. During trainings often I’ve wear a T-shirt he gave me ten years ago. It’s old and in bad condition, but I still have it as a power T-shirt. Why do I train so hard? I have no clue. I feel good, I feel relaxed, I feel alive. Rest in peace Tomaž.
Here are two images from my personal photo-diary. First one is with my daughters and a T-shirt of Tomaž Humar.
