Chris Brunkhart passed away in 2016 after a long battle with cancer.

Chris was a photographer's photographer, steadfastly preferring to shoot on black and white film til the end. Through his lens and iconic style, Chris captured grainy images that felt like his beloved Pacific Northwest - moody, sublime and deeply personal.

Chris credited Craig Kelly with giving him his first real break as a professional photographer, and the images he made of riders like Craig, Jamie Lynn and Matt Donahue came to define what it meant to live like a snowboarder.

Chris was so much more than a snowboard photographer, he was drawn to the gritty urbanscapes of Portland and New York, and his incredible eye for light and moments both timeless and fleeting lend weight to his photography that transcends any genre.

More than anything, Chris was a gentle soul whose quiet strength touched all who knew him. He was part of the Asymbol family and he will be dearly missed.
