In David Yarrow’s own words, a story about this piece:
“South Georgia Island, 2018
The vast number of penguin chicks in Golden Harbour in the early summer offers an opportunity to play with numbers. We brought a ladder all the way from London as we had a preconception that a raised position would give greater depth.
I knew what I was looking for – we just needed to have eyes in the back of our heads. It is difficult to really convey the number of penguins on the beach, it’s as dense as this image suggests. The whole experience is somewhat overwhelming. It’s a rather surreal image – but it’s reality.”
