Traveling Light is a periodically bound collection of well taken photographs exploring outdoor adventure. A wordless journal of light.
Traveling Light will provide the reader with the opportunity to immerse oneself in timeless portraits of the great outdoors. This 30 page magazine will contain a series of prints professionally curated and recorded via medium format digital photography.
The theory of Traveling Light is simple, but the execution will be challenging. Our first subject will be the nothing less than the Grand Canyon’s Hermit-Boucher Loop. This rugged 22.3 mile loop is among the most difficult hikes of the park but rewards one with the pristine beauty of the southwest.
“The Boucher Trail (pronounced Boo-shay) offers access to a charming and secluded part of the Grand Canyon, but the beauty has a price. The Boucher challenges even experienced canyon hikers. The trail consists of tough, tedious traverses linked together by knee-destroying descents, with a section of exposed hand and toe climbing thrown in for good measure. On the other hand, the canyon always seems to compensate physical effort with spiritual rewards, and opportunities abound to explore side canyons, encounter wildlife, examine ancient geology, and touch the Colorado River at the bottom of the Grand Canyon.”
Jeremy Hollinger(project creator), Adventurer, Traveler, Sherpa, Small Business Owner, Artist, Poet, Writer. Jeremy currently works as a Paramedic in Vermont and a Co-Owner of Brothers Astral LLC a business which promotes artistic enterprises and Vaping products which requires budgeting, project management, artistic design and financials. Jeremy says “I enjoy non-technical mountaineering and being in generally extreme environments. My specific skillset as it relates to this project would be outdoor leadership, planning and budgeting. I have a BS in Allied Healthcare Leadership with a focus on project management from Granite State University. I am excited to be working with Paul and providing the technical support to his artistic endeavors.”
In the creator’s own words: We are asking you to be a part of a magazine bridging the gap between adventure and fine photography. In the spirit of Ansel Adams, photographer Paul Leicht (www.paulleicht.com) and I will take a medium format digital camera to the great outdoors and record what we find in a perfectly bound high quality periodical.
Our itinerary covers 23 miles in 3 nights 4 days giving us the opportunity to stop and shoot photos while covering sufficient ground at 6 miles a day. We will produce 1000 copies of a 30 page, 11×17 perfectly bound offset printed art magazine which will be a delight to own and collect.
Jeremy Hollinger has started a Kickstarter with a goal of raising $7,500. This will pay to the equipment and production aspect of this project.
Backers have several prize tiers and categories to choose from, but you’ve got to be quick!
