Stryker, Jim (Model/Subject) & Kundzicz, Walter (Champion Studios). JIM STRYKER: "ON THE BEACH" COLOR PHOTOGRAPH BY WALTER KUNDZICZ. New York City, NY: Champion Studio, 1960. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 1 pages. Fine.

Rare Jim Stryker and Walter Kundzicz/Champion Studios collectible item. An original vintage color print of Jim Stryker, the single most popular and most good-looking male-nude model discovered by Walter Kundzicz, in one of his most beautiful and iconic portraits. The photograph measures 3.5 X 6 inches and has white borders. It is encased in a protective plastic sheet. The photograph shows Jim Stryker in a Classical pose on the beach, scantily and markedly clad in a bikini brief, and shot with natural light. Jim Stryker is the prototypical All-American male, the embodiment of masculine beauty. He anticipates by about two decades the model/stars of the reigning American photographer of the male nude, Bruce Weber. This is the genuine article, not just memorabilia, a "must-have" collectible for Jim Stryker, Walter Kundzicz/Champion, and male erotic art photography collectors. This is an original color print. It is the only such copy available online, is eminently suitable for framing, and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. There are Jim Stryker/Walter Kundzicz prints and digital copies available online, but most of them have major flaws and have little or no collectible value. A rare copy thus. One of the iconic American male-nude models of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy.
