Seven years ago, Chris Burkard jetted off to Iceland to research glaciers. Now, his photo essay is finally complete.
Many of us are stuck at home. Thankfully, we still have books like this one to keep us occupied. Photographer Chris Burkard’s newest book, “At Glacier’s End,” published this week. It documents a 7-year-long history of some of Iceland’s most remote, threatened, and iconic glaciers through the rivers they create.
Intrigued? Burkard also gave himself another challenge: to capture each landscape from the air. He photographed different glaciers and rivers over a 7-year period. Everything was shot from a small Cessna plane, hovering up to 6,000 feet above the ground.
Accompanied by a textual history of Iceland by Matt McDonald, these photos hold a unique perspective that is better seen in the folds of these pages than in person. And the amount of detail captured makes this the perfect book to read during the quarantine.
The 145-page photo book is available now for $50. You can find the book here.
