Jim Stryker was fresh out of high school when he met photographer Walter Kundzicz (a.k.a. Champion) in the summer of 1952. In search of new subjects for a growing portfolio of young male models, Champ heard tell of a beautiful blonde boy and had gone to a rural swimming hole to meet the youth. Upon arrival, he was greeted with the breathtaking sight of a fully naked 18-year-old in a tree, laughing uproariously as he urinated on a friend standing below.
Jim and Champ hit it off at once and the photographer quickly proceeded with the first of 21 separate photo sessions with the boy, quickly turning him into one of the first (and still most enduringly popular)gay icons of all time.
In a new Starmale portfolio, we're proud to present nearly 70 stunning photographs of this legendary beauty contributed by Starmale member R.W., including many previously unseen frontal nudes.
