“Under an Arctic Sky” journeys with the surfers, Burkard and filmmaker Ben Weiland in the remote fjords of the Hornstrandir Nature Reserve in Iceland. The winter expedition faces huge challenges—and potentially huge waves—in the face of a historic storm, the largest to make landfall in 25 years. As an explorer and photographer, Burkard’s worldview is all about traveling the globe and capturing humankind’s relationship with the natural world while working to preserve those wild spaces.
