Distant Shores

Chris Burkard's photographs are punctuated by energized landscapes and moments of bliss, by adventure seeking surfers and images of natural serenity. With the ocean as his main muse, Burkard in DISTANT SHORES has consistently captured this subject in timeless and expansive photographic impressions. He has focused on the sport and art of surfing as a bridge between the comparatively humble human figure and awe-inspiring, powerful natural landscapes. DISTANT SHORES is an impressive photographic record of Burkard's search for wild, remote surfing destinations around the globe. He has spent more than a decade on this quest, and in the process has established himself as a major photographer in the surf, outdoor, and adventure communities as well as a chronicler of some of the most beautiful natural phenomena in the world.
