David Yarrow has built an unrivalled reputation for capturing the beauty of the planet’s remote landscapes, cultures, and endangered animals. Born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1966, he is now an internationally acclaimed fine art photographer and Europe’s best selling wildlife photographer.
He is represented by some of the world’s leading galleries, with his prints selling for up to $60,000 and in America David has shown at the renowned Perot Museum in Dallas, at Rotella Gallery in New York and Bellevue, WA, and his work is permanently on show at the new Museum of Natural History in Missouri. David’s images are among some of the most sought after pieces of work within the industry.
David has recently signed a global book deal with Rizzoli publishing house in New York, to produce a flagship book named ‘Wild Encounters’ which features work from seven continents, capturing some of the earths most endangered species. He is honoured that HRH the Duke of Cambridge has written the foreword to the book, which was released in October 2016. All author royalties from the book will go to Tusk Trust.
Alongside Rizzoli, David will launch the book in a series of events across the world in the last quarter of 2016, including exhibitions at Fotografiska in Stockholm, La Photographie Galerie in Brussels, Holden Luntz in Palm Beach, at London’s Somerset House, and at Rotella Gallery in New York.
Tusk has been supporting wildlife, communities, and education in Africa since 1990, investing over £ 20 m into a broad range of conservation initiatives.
Under the patronage of HRH The Duke of Cambridge, Tusk not only works to protect endangered species, but also aims to use conservation as an effective tool to alleviate poverty and promote sustainable development amongst the rural communities who live alongside wildlife. As the human population increases the inevitable demand for land often leads to conflict with wildlife. Tusk’s holistic approach recognizes that the future of the continent’s natural heritage is as much dependent on improving education as it is on providing protection. Therefore, whilst investing substantial funds in security, Tusk also helps to fund the construction of primary & secondary schools, water projects, as well as initiatives that can stimulate employment through nature-based enterprise in remote areas.
Tusk has earned a reputation for being highly efficient in delivering donor funds to the field. The Charity, which has offices in the UK and USA, is currently focused on aiding international efforts to halt the illegal trade in ivory and rhino horn and to increase security for vulnerable populations. Consumer demand has stimulated a devastating escalation in poaching of elephant, rhino and lion that threatens the survival of these species in the wild.
David Yarrow’s stunning collection of monochrome images and support of Tusk’s work shows not only his passionate desire to create an extraordinary photograph but also his deep concern for the conservation of the environments and subjects that he captures. Tusk is proud to be affiliated with David.
