    • DISTANT SHORES: Surfing the Ends of the Earth
      by Chris Burkard
      edited by Steve Crist

      Award-winner global surf photographer Chris Burkard’s photographs are punctuated by energized landscapes and moments of bliss, by adventure seeking and the lifestyle that it encompasses, and by movement and intuitive light-working capabilities.

      With the ocean as his muse, Burkard has consistently captured this subject in timeless and expansive photographic impressions, utilizing the tool of surfing to approach the ocean's intricate personality and then extending out to include the human personalities that draw meaning from this same source. Searching for wild, remote destinations and offbeat landscapes, Burkard portrays the humble placement of the human in contrast to nature.

      Chris Burkard is a native Californian whose photographs have appeared in countless magazines and advertising campaigns. He serves as senior staff photographer for Surfer magazine and contributes regularly to various international publications. Burkard is co-author with Eric Soderquist of “The California Surf Project” (2006), and author of “Plight of the Torpedo People” which accompanies the Patagonia body surfing film “Come Hell or High Water” (2012).

      "You don’t need to be a surfer to appreciate the width and breadth of what Chris has accomplished with “Distant Shores.” If anything, it helps to lose any preconceived notions you may have about surfing. It’s not always sand, sunshine, and palm trees. Sometimes it’s at night in Iceland, in the shadows of snow-covered mountains and under the glow of the northern lights. Or trekking through the Russian countryside or Mexican cactus fields just to reach the water. Often camping right on the beach, Chris’ images tell stories not only of the landscapes he photographs, but of the people who inhabit those landscapes as well."The Photo Brigade
