Glasgow-born photographer David Yarrow swapped an illustrious 30-year career in finance for a life behind the lens. Now one of the world’s best-selling photographers, he’s represented by prestigious galleries across the world. His subject matter is the natural world and its inhabitants, with a sharp and unsentimental focus on endangered species and vulnerable people and areas. Yarrow’s frequent use of extremely low angles creates a sense of immersion into his images, while his stark, wide-angle shots convey the remoteness and harshness of the isolated areas he visits. Once seen, his images are not easily forgotten, which as a conservationist, is surely Yarrow’s goal.
His book, Wild Encounters (Rizzoli), showcases his photographic journey across seven continents and was named The Best Art and Photography Book of 2016 by Amazon.
