“I am not a wildlife photographer; I am a photographer… I am subject agnostic with just one caveat – the subject must interest me or challenge me. I want this book to showcase the breadth and magnificence of life on our planet by taking readers on an evocative and immersive journey that is distinctive.”

For more than two decades, legendary British photographer David Yarrow has been putting himself in harm’s way to capture immersive and evocative photography of the world’s most revered and endangered species. With his images heightening awareness of these species and raising huge sums for charity and conservation, he is one of the most relevant photographers in the world today. Featuring Yarrow’s 150 most iconic photographs, DAVID YARROW offers a truly unmatched view of some of the world’s most compelling animals. This collection of stunning images, paired with Yarrow’s first-person contextual narrative, offers insight into a man who will not accept second best in his relentless pursuit of excellence. He rarely just takes pictures – he almost always makes them, and his approach sets him apart from others in the field.

Yarrow’s work will awaken our collective conscience, and he and Tom Brady both plan to donate all of the royalties from this book to conservation efforts around the globe, namely WildAid in the United States and Tusk in the United Kingdom. In 2018 alone, the sales of Yarrow’s prints have contributed over $2.7 million to conservation NGOs, children’s education in Africa, and various medical research charities around the world.

We are delighted to welcome David for an evening celebrating the must-have photography monograph of the year.
