The Immersive Black and White Photography of David Yarrow
David Yarrow is a British fine-art photographer, conservationist and author. He has travelled to isolated locations to capture images of wildlife, indigenous communities and landscapes. Known for his oversized, monochromatic images, David’s approach is as immersive as it can be.
When possible, David takes his photographs of dangerous wildlife using a remote-controlled camera, acknowledging that a photographer can achieve perspective by capturing shots that look up at the animal from the ground.
He uses an innovative technique to capture his shots. One of Yarrow’s methods involves coating his camera casing in a variety of scents to entice dangerous animals towards his camera lens. These treatments have been used after research into identifying the most attractive and enticing smell for the animal in question.
