David Yarrow Exhibition Opening Reception & Book LaunchDate:
This is the first time that David Yarrow photography has been exhibited in Vancouver, and the exhibition will be free for the public to view. All of the exhibited works of art will also be available for purchase with prices ranging from $16,500 – $80,000 CAD. This year David Yarrow’s fine-art photographs have been exhibited in cities around the world, including Oslo, Amsterdam, Monaco, London, Chicago, New York, LA and Dallas.
David Yarrow is a Scottish fine-art photographer, conservationist and author. He is globally known for his photographs that capture wildlife, landscapes and indigenous communities. Yarrow often uses a remote-controlled camera to capture dangerous animals in environmentally sensitive, and dangerous areas. This photographic technique allows Yarrow to achieve different photographic angles and perspectives, such as animals looking directly at or down at the camera. Yarrow has recently started to work with well-known celebrities and incorporated them into his wildlife photos, including Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevinge and Canadian Pamela Anderson.
“I have wanted to showcase my photographs in Vancouver for quite some time now, and I am excited for this opportunity to exhibit at Chali-Rosso Art Gallery,” said David Yarrow, fine-art photographer. “Vancouver is a global city and multi-cultural hub, and I believe that my photographs will be of interest to Vancouverites, and visitors from around the world.”
A few of the photographs that will be on display at the Chali-Rosso Art Gallery for the duration of the exhibition include:
The Untouchables: (Amboseli, Kenya 2017)
The composition is an act of god – but I am willing to take it. The frame within the frame. The big bull had to block the late afternoon sun otherwise there was no picture and he kindly did that, which allowed the lighting to be energetic and dramatic. The whole picture – almost full frame – will never be repeated. This immersive study of their kingdom is a complete one off.
The Black Panther Returns: (South Africa, 2019)
I look at this photograph with the dust, the composition, the backlight, and the energy and I recognize that my skills as a photographer have improved with age. I make pictures rather than take them, and through failure I have a more refined understanding of what I need to do when I go to work. I am not sure I could have made this image in 2010 or even 2016.
Desert Flight: (Amboseli, Kenya 2014)
The picture will carry resonance for those with an interest in photographic history. It was, after all, an early photograph that proved unequivocally that a horse runs with all four feet off the ground. The same is certainly true of the zebra.
“I have admired David Yarrow’s fine-art photography for many years, and we were thrilled when we were provided with the opportunity to showcase his work in our Gallery,” said Susanna Strem, Owner and Curator of Chali-Rosso Art Gallery. “David Yarrow’s photos have been exhibited in major cities all over the world and he has received worldwide acclaim. We are proud to be able to exhibit his incredible work in Vancouver for the very first time.”
At the Sotheby’s photography auction in London in May – Yarrow’s iconic image from South Sudan – Mankind – was sold for $75,000 USD – the highest of the 100 lots in the show. In April the following year David’s image “The Wolf of Main Street” sold for $100,000 USD and was the highest bid for piece by a living photographer, and most recently “78 Degrees North” went for $110,000 USD.
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. David’s images are among some of the most sought after pieces of work within the industry.
