Regular readers of TBTP know that I am a bit obsessed with Iceland. And even though I couldn’t visit this year due to the pandemic travel restrictions, I’ve already made plans for my next trip. So until then I must be satisfied with virtual visits.
Over the past few years, California photographer, biker, and surfer Chris Burkhard has also been a little obsessed with Iceland. You may have seen some of his extraordinary photos from his trips or heard about his insane bike trip across the country from east to west coast through the wild highlands. His wonderful short film below titled Unnur tells the story of Icelandic surfer and photographer Elli Thor and his young daughter. The 19 minute video is a lovely tale of a father-daughter relationship, as well as an exceptional look at one of my favorite places on Earth.
