The three of us had been driving around the Eastside all day, stopping here and there to make photographs. I needed one more image to complete the calendar. Driving back to the Mobile in Lee Vining we decided to checkout some randomness by the roadside.
Honora snowboarded in this lettuce bikini and made it on international television after winning first place. The bikini shut down the contest, featured by Rolling Stone infor 7 years because of complaints about her nipples. This was 6 years before the FreeTheNipple movement.
He is, by my estimation, the longest standing dirtbag in the history of Yosemite, with an illustrious career spanning from the s to current day. In fact, he was recently found scrubbing toilets in Yosemite with one of the most stalwart new-school dirtbags, James Lucas. Fidelman has photographed everyone from John Bachar and Lynn Hill to Dean Potter and the Huber brothers, all while sleeping in his car or in a cave.

As an enthusiast, collector, and publisher, Weber has brought a number of lesser known photographers to light, mostly through his self-published magazine "All-American" - now in its 10th volume.

By putting those two ideas together, I thought I could make it work.
