Adios Amigo

Vadim Bora died.

The end of an era.  The passing of a friend.

I first met Vadim when I moved to Asheville in May of 2008.  I stopped by his studo to see if he had any photographic needs I could meet — a sales call.

What started as a sales call ended up in a friendship.  I would stop by his studio often.  Sometimes to look around and see what was new.  Other times just to set and chat and share a smoke or two.

I never did get to do any photography for him.  But I got more.  I got a friend.

I miss you my friend.

  1. Спасибо всем людям г.Эшвилла за переживания и соболезнование по поводу ухода в мир иной Вадима Бораева. Он с детства был неординарной личностью: талантливый, целеустремленной и очень трудолюбивый. Он всегда знал, чего хочет в искусстве. Он добился многого. Светлая ему память на века! Северная Осетия и Россия скорбят вместе с теми, кто его любил и уважал!
