Words by Rizzoli:
David Yarrow takes his work to the next level in these tales of adventure and misadventure on an epic scale.
For more than two decades, legendary British photographer David Yarrow has created evocative photography of some of the world’s most iconic personalities, sporting moments and endangered wildlife. With his images raising huge sums for charity, he is one of the most relevant and best-selling photographers in the world today.
This stunning volume is a retrospective of Yarrow’s storytelling work, which has earned him wide acclaim in the fine-art market. This assemblage of truly unmatched work brings the magic and brilliance of the big screen to each singular image. Inspired by the great cinematic directors, Yarrow tells stories from the Wild West to the Pirates of the Caribbean, the coasts of Alaska to the plains of Africa, Manhattan to an old saloon in Montana. Whether poignant, dramatic, or provocative, they are always epic. Offering additional insight are behind-the-scenes photos and Yarrow’s own first-person contextual narratives.
The book features more than 130 yet-to-be-published photographs, some of which will become iconic, including work from assignments with some of the biggest names and brands in fashion, sports, and culture, like Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Ciara and Russell Wilson, and Alessandra Ambrosio.
“I AM A STORYTELLER WHO MAKES PICTURES RATHER THAN NECESSARILY TAKES THEM. I AM ONLY AS GOOD AS MY NEXT SHOT, AND THAT LEADS ME TO LOOK FORWARD, NOT BACK. MY BEST PICTURES ARE THE ONES I HAVE NOT TAKEN YET.”
