How Many Dreams in the Dark? My life on the road with the legends of snowboarding. by chris brunkhart

That’s quite the lengthy title but it suits the length and depth of his career. The other day i received word that Chris Brunkhart has made his goal of raising 5,000 dollars to publish his book.

“I have been photographing for over 25 years. Starting my career at a newspaper in Chicago and eventually found my home in Portland. Around 1991 I got involved in snowboarding in its infancy. Becoming a senior photographer for Snowboarder and Transworld magazines, I shot with Craig Kelly, Jamie Lynn Terje Haakonsen and Matt Donahue and host of others from all around the world.

I have seen 6 continents, finding the beauty not only in the mountains but in the people I’ve met, the cities I’ve visited and the culture I’ve encountered. I helped found The Movement Snowboards and Frequency magazine. In 1996 I published “The Creedle Chronicles” with Volcom, and 3 years later released the cult snowboard movie, “The Walrus Dreams.” Currently working on my book, “How Many Dreams In the Dark?” to be released this fall, and continuing to shoot near my home in Sandpoint, Idaho.”

The book is going to print in 3 weeks so keep an eye out and get yourself a piece of snowboard history. In the meantime check out Transworld Snowboarding’s interview with him.
