    Pete Biro passed away on 24 December condolences to his family, friends, and legions of fans of his work for what it s worth here s my note He was an amazingly nice man proud of his work, but even proud of the multitude of friendships that he shared across the wide world of motor racing and magic He always had a smile for me, it was a bit crooked at times, it was like Stokes, what the hell are you talking about , which he never said aloud but I knew full well he was thinking His photography framed a huge amount of my world for untold years and just one of his tiniest, quickest now you thought you saw it slight of hand throwaways kept my head spinning for hours after he tossed it at me with a quick wave of his hand It was soundless music.Pete Biro s photographic work simply stands for itself, it s the record of the time And, like all great work it has now outpaced the man who created it Damn right he ll be missed dearly, but he ll be remembered even .Thanks Pete, an honor and a big smile to know ya Doug Stokes12.27.18 I ve not seen this book yet but long knowing that Pete and George are two of the very best, my expectations for this book run very high Pete s wry smile and quick wit will be greatly missed, but we all get to keep and enjoy his distinctly personal work.
