p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Walkin' Jim Stoltz


Walkin' Jim Stoltz died a couple of years ago of cancer, but not before making a name taking long, really long walks, walks that lasted from weeks to years. Appalachian Trail in '74, a 5000 mile cross country trek after that. When he married Leslie in the Grand Canyon, they both walked back to Montana together. He'd often take a summer "hike" across Montana that would carry him 500 miles and last over a month. Jim was a singer and a songwriter and great teller of stories, including his personal encounter with grizzlies. He carried a small travel guitar and a camera with him. I met him in Big Sky, where he lived and shot some photos for him. In my ongoing project of scanning images I never got around to, I came across these this week and really liked this image. I'm still surprised how damned nice Plus-X really was. Even if it wasn't the absolute sharpest film, it had beautiful tonality. Don't remember much about the details other than it was an RZ. Probably a 90mm RB lens and most likely a Norman 400B (or two of them) into a Balcar umbrella.

This is really a gorgeous picture! Nice little find there for you. I really like how you lit him/his face just one stop hotter than the sky behind him. Nice job! Thanks for sharing.
