North East China – 2016

This is a simple portrait of a the most dangerous and beautiful cat in the world – The Siberian Tiger. It was taken in -30 degrees in Northern China and whilst there is deliberately no context in the image, there is a sense of the cold.

I believe that powerful photography often tends to be the end result of preferential access and pre-trip logistics. Pressing the shutter is often really fairly straightforward, even at -30 degrees.

This image makes my point. I was in a cage supplied by local officials – a cage with gaps wide enough for my camera lens, but too small for a tiger’s head. Behind my cage was another caged vehicle with a chicken thrower. The tiger was looking at the chickens not me. Logistics like this do not happen in a day – there was a great deal of prep work and in Northern China – unlike Holland –  English is indeed an alien language.

The picture may be simple, but its capture in the deep Siberian winter was far from simple. What an alpha animal – terrifying and beautiful as one.

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.

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.
