Last friday there was a benefit held for legendary snowboarding photographer Chris Brunkhart who has recently been stricken with cancer. Chris is longtime resident of the Portland area and an icon of Northwest snowboarding scene. His moody black and white images showcased the soul of riding in the wet and often dreary conditions found in this part of the world. He also had a speical way of capturing the iconic personalities that called this part of the world home. Chris was living in New York but returned to Portland recently when the cancer dianosis was made. News of his condition made it’s rounds less than 2 months ago and the community quickly rallied together to hold this benefit. The amount of original photos, paintings, boards, sculptors and other unique pieces of art that were donated from around the world was unprecedented. Brunkhart”s work has inspired multiple generations of riders, photographers and creators and this was a night for everyone to give something back.
