David Yarrow was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1966. He took up photography at an
early age and as a 20-year-old found himself working as a photographer for The London
Times on the pitch at the World Cup Final in Mexico City. On that day, David took the
famous picture of Diego Maradona holding the World Cup and, as a result, was
subsequently asked to cover the Olympics and numerous other sporting events. Many
years later David established himself as a photographer by documenting the natural
world from new perspectives and the last nine years have been career defining.
David’s evocative and immersive photography of life on earth is most distinctive and has
earned him an ever growing following amongst art collectors. His large monochrome
images made in Los Angeles are on display in leading galleries and museums across
Europe and North America. He is now recognised as one of the best selling
photographers in the world and his limited edition works regularly sell at high prices at
Sotheby’s and other auction houses.
In September 2019, Rizzoli published their second book by David Yarrow. It was Rizzoli’s
flagship book and their Autumn catalogue featured David’s image on the cover. The
books foreword was written by global NFL star Tom Brady and an afterword written by
American cultural icon Cindy Crawford. All royalties from this book will be donated to
conservation charities Tusk, in the UK and WildAid, in the US.
Exactly three years after the publication of David’s last book, Rizzoli published Storytelling in
2022. Storytelling features over 130 of David’s images taken since 2019. The book’s
foreword was written by Cindy Crawford. All the profits from the copies purchased through
David Yarrow Photography Ltd will be donated to the UW Health Kids Cancer Care Charity.
David and Cindy’s on-going collaboration since 2019 has raised over $3m for the UW Health
Kids Cancer Care Charity.
