a photographic odyssey by chris brunkhart in honor of craig kelly
Near Juneau, Alaska
This photo was taken on one of my first trips with Craig. If there was a word for him, he was an explorer—mind, body and soul. Hiking up to this point in Alaska symbolized his onward march.
My first shot that ran in a magazine was one of Craig. I happened to be in the right place at the right time. We never actually met on that day, he was just hitting a jump in Whistler. Craig called me one day years later and invited me to Alaska. Little did I know the adventures that lay ahead.
He influenced my life, my way of thinking, and how I saw the world. We traveled all over the globe, spending a lot of our time in AK and Chile. For years we bonded, becoming friends and compatriots. I grew as a snowboarder, a photographer and a person knowing him. I’ll never forget these journeys, and my time with a great friend.
