self portraits

Lance Armstrong

Girona, Spain, 2003
lance armstrong is by far the biggest sports man i ever met, let alone photographed. i went to girona in spain to meet him and we spent some nice time together while he was preparing for another tour de france win. i couldn't believe his schedule and was amazed he gave me as much time as he did. i wanted to shoot him without any reference to his sport (like a bike in the shot) so we did some portraits while strolling around town, some were quite funny shots, for the great american magazine Outside. this is my favourite shot of that day.
