Amboseli, Kenya 2017

Bang! This is the big shot of 2017. I want to take pictures that stop people in their tracks. An American friend of mine in the fashion industry calls it a “Kennedy Dead” photo or headline. This is a “Kennedy Dead” image.

In truth, it is a lucky shot on the widest angle lens I have – the 20m. The subject needs to be so close otherwise it will always be “loose” and this requires a great deal of predictive analysis and good fortune. I am clearly not with the camera!

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.

David Yarrow

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 one of the world’s leading fine art photographers. At the Sotheby’s photography auction in London, May 2017, David’s iconic picture –Mankind –was sold for £60,000 –the highest price of the 100 lots on auction. He is represented by some of the world’s leading galleries and in America David has shown at the renowned Perot Museum in Dallas 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 a global book deal with Rizzoli publishing house inNew York and produced a flagship book named ‘Wild Encounters’ featuring work from seven continents, capturing some of the earth’s most endangered species. He is honored that HRH the Duke of Cambridge wrote the foreword to the book which was released in October 2016 and all author royalties from the book will go to Tusk Trust. Amazon awarded it “The Best Art and Photography book of 2016”. Alongside Rizzoli, David launched the book in a series of events across the world in the last quarter of 2016, including exhibitions at Fotografiska in Stockholm, Leonhard’s Gallery in Antwerp, Holden Luntz in Palm Beach and at London’s Somerset House. In April 2017 at the annual Tusk Gala in NYC, David’s images raised $175,000 at auction, including two lots which sold for $50,000 each, very much cementing his status as one of the most coveted artists in his field.
