Distant Shores by Chris Burkard

Distant Shores by Chris Burkard

Distant Shores ($39.95) is the newest coffee table book from award-winning surf and travel photographer Chris Burkard. In the large 180-paged book, Chris shares some of his best surf trips to remote and distant locations around the world.

While the human element is there in nearly all his images, it’s the wild and beautiful nature that really take center stage.  The work is really amazing as evidenced by just a small sampling below:

Be sure to get your yourself a copy and check out the rest of Burkard’s goods at his shop or follow his amazing journeys on Instagram.

Behind Photographs – Archiving Photographic Legends

20 Jan

Behind Photographs – Archiving Photographic Legends

Feeling a void out there with photographers not getting the credit they deserve for their images, photographer Tim Mantoani set out on his own personal 5-year long project now titled Behind Photographs. He has now photographed over 150 of the most iconic living photographers with the images that made them famous. One unique aspect of the project is that Tim used the mammoth 20″ x 24″ Polaroid Camera to capture the images and allowed the photographers to write a short story about their iconic shots at the bottom of the huge prints.

The final result is a beautiful 220 page, 11″x14″ book, Behind Photographs in 3 versions—Standard, slip-case and special edition (150 cloth bound book blind embossing and case.) If you buy 3 of the standard books ($60) from his site he’ll even upgrade one of them to the slipcase edition ($99).
