“Chilian Coastline”

 

About Chris Burkhard

Chris Burkard is a self-taught photographer and artist, based in Central Coast California, whose work is layered by surf, outdoor, lifestyle and travel subjects. Burkard’s images are punctuated by energized landscapes and moments of bliss, by adventure seeking and the lifestyle that ensues, by movement and intuitive light-working capabilities. With the ocean as his main muse, Burkard has consistently captured this subject in timeless and expansive photographic impressions, utilizing the tool of surfing to approach the ocean’s intricate personality and then extending out to include the human personalities that draw meaning from this same source.

Searching for wild, remote destinations and offbeat landscapes, Burkard portrays the humble placement of the human in contrast to nature. At the age of 29, Burkard has established himself as a known name in the surf and outdoor industries, accomplished a deep body of work, held staff and senior photographer positions and has been recognized continually for his distinct creative compositions

Things They Left Behind: Wells’s Photos Of Foreclosed Homes

By Greg Cook the Artery

A pacifier discarded on the floor. Boxes of Christmas decorations. An American flag wadded up and wedged between a towel rack and a bathroom wall.

Since 2009, David H. Wells has been recording the human cost of our Great Recession that began the year before by photographing the things people left behind when they abandoned foreclosed homes.

In the Providence photographer’s heartbreaking exhibit “Foreclosed Dreams,” organized by guest curator Viera Levitt at Yellow Peril Gallery (60 Valley St., #5, Providence, through May 12), he documents toys, credit reports, martial arts trophies and family heirlooms jettisoned in homes in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, California, Connecticut, Florida, Louisiana, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and South Carolina.

A pile of half eaten toast lies on a plate in a kitchen in a Huntington Park, Calif. A black and white photo of a uniformed serviceman embracing a woman is tucked behind (what looks to be) an electric cord in a Providence home.

NEW YORK – August 11, 2015 — The Josephine Herrick Project (JHP), a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating students through the communicative power of photography, will host its annual Benefit Party and Photography Auction on Monday evening, October 19th at Affirmation Arts in New York City. Proceeds from the event will help support and sustain the foundation’s extensive community and youth programs which center on photography as a powerful learning and communications tool.

 

The focal point of the evening will center on its live (and online) auction of original photographs from some of the world’s most notable and legendary photographers, whose proceeds represent approximately 25% of the foundation’s operating budget to continue funding education programs for adults and children nationwide. The list of photographers who have donated prints to the auction are a venerable who’s who in the world of photography including Robert Farber, Michael Kenna, Marion Post Wolcott and Douglass Kirkland. In cooperation with Paddle8, a New York-based auction house, art lovers around the world will be able to bid on their favorite photographs online.

 

“Since 1941, The Josephine Herrick Program has brought the magic of photography to more than 100,000 disadvantaged Americans and the core of its success lies with the unwavered support of the photographic community,” explains Jackie Augustine, president of JHP and Jackie Augustine Consulting. “This annual event is a great representation of how artists, manufacturers, and executives from the photo community work together for a common cause.”
