UNNUR / Chris Burkard Studio





All these roads lead us to so many destinations. Sometimes the greatest treasures are found on the roads less traveled. The paths that we clear for ourselves.... Our children. So many love to follow the crowd.  With Covid -19 I am grateful for silencing the noise around me. My path is clear. My mind open. Children are our greatest blessing..... In life the universe can deliver life altering circumstance. We must listen to the universe. Our spirits are highly attentive to the energies around us. It is important to not give energy to things that serve no purpose. making your children a priority is the only path......


Elli Thor is an Icelandic photographer, surfer, and former kayaker. A decade ago Elli nearly drowned under a waterfall while kayaking a challenging Icelandic river. The near death experience became a catalyst for personal growth and his professional career. After walking away from kayaking, a newfound passion for surfing and the birth of his daughter Unnur gave him a new perspective worth living for.
