Jure Robič died in a car accident today. He was true inspiration for everybody who have met him. He was the only person who won five times Race Across America RAAM and watching him cycling was an experience of humbleness to this great athlete! I’ve met him on Monday at Stožice stadium and I’m made a picture for him as a souvenir, but flash settings overexposed the shot. Only his shots were all overexposed. Only his three shots. Those shots casually taken turned out to be the last shots of Jure…

If I remember correctly Nan Goldin said that she was taking pictures of her friends that were dying, to keep the memories, to keep them alive in her memory, but after their death, photographs are just reminding her how much she’s lost.
