Explore Iceland’s Uncharted Expanse With Chris Burkard’s ‘At Glacier’s End’

Chris Burkard has fostered a reputation as one of the world’s finest outdoor photographers. Whether he spends his time capturing serene imagery of North America’s most prolific national parks — or heading to the top of the globe for the documentation of winter waves — the artist, pixel peeper, and all-around renaissance man has successfully “stopped time” for mankind’s future generations. Now, his recent book centering on Iceland’s glacier rivers has finally been released.

In typical Burkard fashion, the 145-page “At Glacier’s End” presents the beauty of Iceland’s natural landscape from a far different perspective than most. Dynamic aerial shots, angular tilts, and abstract, close-cropped images are scattered throughout, making the northern landscape look more like a watercolor painting than a realistic, snow-strewn mass of dirt and rock. The vast majority of images that were shot for the photo journal were taken by Burkard from 1,000 to 6,000 feet above the ground, giving new context to a number of Iceland’s most remote areas. And while we’re all picking up a copy for the dramatic artistry, the book will still cater to those who are looking for a health admittance of written word, thanks to contextual writing by Matt McDonald, and personal anecdotes from Burkard himself. Head over to the photographer’s website, where you’ll be able to pick up a copy for $50.
