NOMAD OF THE WEEK // CHRIS BURKARD
July 1, 2015
Chris Burkard is a self-taught photographer and artist, based in Central Coast California, whose work is layered by surf, outdoor, lifestyle and travel subjects. Chris’s images are punctuated by energized landscapes and moments of bliss, by adventure seeking and the lifestyle that ensues, by movement and intuitive light-working capabilities. With the ocean as his main muse, Chris 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, Chris portrays the humble placement of the human in contrast to nature. At the age of 29, Chris has established himself as a known name in the surf and outdoor industries, accomplished a deep body of work, held staff and senior photographer positions and has been recognized continually for his distinct creative compositions.
As well as his work, we want to speak about him as person in close relationship with nature. Anywhere he goes « It's never enough just to observe, he always wants to be involved ». What he shows us with his photos is authenticity and purity of the world around him.
Through all his photos, you will discover his personality and why he deserves the award of Nomad of the week according to Kampes Nomads.
