Photographer Chris Burkard and Ben Weiland are out with a new photo book and short film chronicalling a recent trip to Russia. The Outpost Volume 1 is a 100 page color photobook and 25 minute short film that follows Burkard, Weiland, Cyrus Sutton, Keith Malloy, Trevor Gordon, Dane Gudauskas and Foster Huntington through Russia’s wild Kamchatka peninsula in search of a prisitine wilderness that has the promise of perfect surf and pristine fishing. Navigating through the wilds of Kamchakta, the crew travels by military troop carrier and helicopter to remote beaches weaving around active volcanoes. Pieces from the book will be on display at SMASH fest in New York this weekend and it will tour the west coast in late August/early September so lookout for details on that.
Here’s a glimpse at what to expect from the book and movie:
