Capturing the splendor and very soul of what remains wild and free in our world through incredibly intimate – close enough to touch – portraits, Wild Encounters: Iconic Photographs of the World's Vanishing Animals and Cultures chronicles legendary photographer David Yarrow's photographic exploits in the field. Driven by a passion for sharing and preserving the Earth's last great wild cultures and species, Yarrow is as much a conservationist as a photographer and artist. His work has transcended wildlife photography, and is now collected and shown as fine art in some of the most famed galleries around the world. Yarrow goes Pole-to-Pole, continent-to-continent – mountain to tundra to primordial jungle – inviting us to truly connect with a subject that we mistakenly think we have seen before. Yarrow takes the familiar – lions, elephants, tigers, polar bears – and makes them new again by creating iconic images that deliberately connect with us at a highly emotional level.
