Bo Bridges as curated by DK Johnston

This Thursday (from 6-9pm)  head to The Quin (101 West 57th Street) for “Fear the Unlived Life,” an exhibition from acclaimed photographer Bo Bridges. Curated by DK Johnston, the exhibition displays Bridges trademark passion for outdoor adventure and impactful moments. The exhibition will also include a 13-screen video art wall display, highlighting Bridges work with leading celebrities, athletes and musicians.

Bo Bridges has spent his life chasing the natural high that comes from, as he puts it, “teetering on the edge of trouble.” His quest has led him to far flung destinations around the world to shoot big wave surf, the highest altitudes, and people that, like him, live life to test its limits. The exhibition at the Quin features Bridge’s favorite playgrounds – from Teahupo’o, Tahiti (where he shot the cover of Surfer magazine), to Hawaii’s North Shore, Mexico’s Guadalupe Islands, the Grand Tetons and his own backyard in Southern California. Fear the Unlived Life demonstrates with stunning imagery just what “the pursuit of the rush” looks like.

Bo Bridges is a world-renowned commercial and fine art photographer. His passion for adventure drives the dynamic imagery he produces. His portfolio is an eclectic mix of professional athletes, celebrity portraits, film and television campaigns, in addition to beautiful scenes and imagery from around the world. After acquiring his pilot’s license in 1999, Bo began developing his signature theme, ‘from above and below,’ that is prevalent in much of his work. He moved to Vail, Colorado in 2001 to shoot ski and snowboard athletes and became primary photographer at both the Summer and Winter X Games, a role he has held for the past 15 years. His passion for action and adventure has also included shooting campaigns for action films including Mission: Impossible V, The Transporter, Brick Castles and Chasing Mavericks.

ESPN has called Bo’s photo credits a “pyramid wall filled with iconic pieces of history,” while Elite Daily labeled him “The World’s Most Badass Photographer,” His adventures range from swimming with great white sharks of Guadalupe Island, to hanging outside of an airplane with Tom Cruise in Morocco, to developing awareness about the damage of natural disasters with Linkin Park and their Music for Relief foundation. Bridges is pioneering the use of virtual reality in action and water sports, bringing a never-before-seen experience to viewers and pushing the boundaries of his work to be able to share new perspectives with the world.
