At age eighteen, Chris Brunkhart began his photography career at a Chicago newspaper. Shortly after moving to Portland, Oregon, Brunkhart connected with a community of athletes galvanized around the emerging sport of snowboarding. Within the snowboarding community, Brunkhart was able to discover and refine his emotionally stylistic approach to photography. The depth of Brunkhart’s aesthetic purposefully blurs the all too often regimented line separating sports documentary and fine art.

Brunkhart worked at Snowboarder, Transworld, and Frequency magazines, documenting a community of athletic mavericks traveling across six continents. During this time, major collaborative works included The Creedle Chronicles (1996) andThe Walrus Dreams (1996). His work documenting snowboarding, often described as having a dark atmospheric quality, gave as much attention to landscape as athlete.

In 2010, Brunkhart published his book How Many Dreams in the Dark?. The retrospective collection documented his global travels within the snowboarding community, showcasing our collective dream of the proverbial journey.

In the fall of 2012, he branched out from photographic work, collaboratively curating and creating instillation works for the group show Function: Past, Present, Failure. Beyond his work in photography, Brunkhart dabbles in mixed media sculpture, woodworking, and has contributed to film and video works, including the forthcoming film by Matt Donahue, Vodnik.

Today, Brunkhart is exploring concerns of post-modern American experiences, concerns made visible at the intersections of “nature”, “society”, and material culture. He is shooting landscape photography and field portraiture. He currently lives with his partner in Brooklyn, NY.
