Distant Shores: Surfing The Ends Of The Earth by Chris Burkard

The latest book from the award-winner global surf photographer Chris Burkard!

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 main 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.

At just 26 years of age, Burkard has spent the last eight years seeking out remote surf in the most rugged conditions in the world. In the process, he has established himself as a major photographer in the surf and outdoor community. Burkard serves as senior staff photographer for Surfer magazine and contributes regularly to various international publications and companies such as Patagonia.

Burkard has completed two book projects, one with friend and co-author Eric Soderquist, titled ""The California Surf Project"" (2006), and the other, ""Plight of the Torpedo People,"" accompanying Patagonia body surfing film, ""Come Hell or High Water"" (2012).
