Widely recognized for the biggest airs in skiing, Julian Carr has been featured in seven Warren Miller films, developing a reputation not only for big airs, but for all around skiing. He’s received a ‘Photo of the Year’ award from Powder Magazine, won the prestigious Sickbird Award on the Freeskiing World Tour, and he holds two world records in cliff height. Julian serves as an ambassador for Protect Our Winters ( POW ) as well as The Climate Reality Project, and he’s the founder of Discrete Clothing. Most recently, Julian founded a mountain running series, the Cirque Series, which is in its third.
“Skier Julian Carr is known for dropping massive cliffs with his signature swan-dive front flip. Brighton Resort, perched at the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon in Utah, is known for its exceptionally deep snow and healthy airs. Put the two together on the right day and voila! This is, hands down, one of my favorite ski images that I’ve ever photographed! Gnarly action, legit composition and light. These don’t come along all that often.” — Adam Barker
