For over two decades, legendary British photographer David Yarrow has been putting himself in harm's way to capture immersive and evocative photography of some of the world s most revered and endangered animal species. With his images heightening awareness of endangered species and also raising huge sums for charity and conservation, he is one of the most relevant photographers in the world today. Featuring his 150 most iconic photographs, this large photographic portfolio (measuring 34 × 38 cm) offers a truly unmatched view of some of the world's most compelling and threatened species. This collection of stunning images, paired with Yarrow's first-person contextual narrative, offers an insight into a man who will not accept second best in the relentless pursuit of excellence. David Yarrow offers a balanced retrospective between his spectacular work in the wild and his staged storytelling work that has earned him wide acclaim in the fine art market. The intricacy and balance in these considered vignettes reinforces the work ethic in his research-based natural work. Yarrow rarely just takes pictures he almost always makes them. Whether it be in the wilds of Alaska or an old saloon bar in Montana, there will always be a preconception of what he is looking for in the final work. The consistency of this approach sets him apart from others in the field. Yarrow's work will awaken our collective conscience and true to form he has agreed to donate all the royalties from this book to conservation.
David Yarrow has been taking photographs for 36 years and as early as aged 20 was covering world cups, Olympic Games, and other international sporting events. In the last decade, his unique portrayal of the natural world has earned him a global following, exhibitions at some of Europe and North America s foremost museums and representation by over 25 leading galleries in 15 countries. He is a global ambassador for Land Rover and a European ambassador for Nikon. Yarrow's stature has been elevated as the perception of his work has evolved from being a master wildlife photographer to a relevant artist of his generation. Yarrow is relentless in his determination for his work to be both captivating and authentic.
Tom Brady is considered the greatest NFL quarterback of all time and is the only player in NFL history to win six Super Bowls. Away from the field, Brady supports his wife, Gisele Bundchen, in her work as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Environment Program.
"David Yarrow doesn't take pictures; he makes them. Critical of typical, documentary-style wildlife photography, the British fine-art photographer is known for getting up close to his subjects – even when they're apex predators. 'The biggest difference between art and reportage is proximity and emotion, ' he says. To achieve that difference, Yarrow might face a charging elephant, wait for the perfect 10 minutes of light, or spend 99 hours tracking a tiger. His new eponymous book features 150 of his most compelling photographs."
