David Yarrow is a British fine-art photographer, conservationist and author. He has travelled to isolated locations and has built an unrivalled reputation for capturing the beauty of the planet’s remote landscapes, cultures and endangered animals. He currently lives in London.
David Yarrow took up photography at an early age and as a 20-year-old, he found himself working as a photographer for The London Times on the pitch at the World Cup Final in Mexico City. On that day, David took the famous picture of Diego Maradona holding the World Cup and as a result, he was subsequently asked to cover the Olympics and numerous other sporting events.
David found his true comfort zone in documenting the natural world and the last eight years have been career defining.
Yarrow’s evocative and immersive photography of life on earth is most distinctive and it has earned him an ever growing following amongst art collectors. His large monochrome images made in Los Angeles are on display in many leading galleries and museums across Europe and North America and his work is also a regular feature at established art fairs.
Through his lens we can see the true beauty of our planet and discover a perspective on life and wildlife that leaves one humbled and in awe. The importance of David’s photos lies in their ability to force the viewer to once again realise that nature — the oldest subject matter in art — is still and always will be, our most precious treasure and most undeniable source of splendour.
Yarrow’s position in the industry has been rewarded with a wide range of advisory and ambassadorial roles.
