About the work

Black Beauty

David Yarrow:

"Borana in Kenya offers some of the most raw, dramatic scenery in East Africa with rolling plains, forests, steep hills and expressive rocks. Its most famous spot is Pride Rock of The Lion King's famous opening fame, where the 2019 remake was also filmed. I was honoured to be asked to shoot the new Land Rover Defender on this location.

In 2007, the Dyer farming family made a decision to commit all retained earnings from commercial activities on Borana to support the increased costs of conservation. Borana and Lewa together now boast the most successful rhino conservancy in Kenya. Poaching is a thing of the past in this part of Kenya thanks to second and third generation farming families like the Dyers and the Craigs in Lewa. The success of Kenyan farmers in Borana brought new residents from Europe, like Michael Spencer and Sarah, along with their champion racehorses. Michael knows everything about old colonial Africa; Borana is his spiritual home and integral to his soul. I want to thank Michael for all his support over the years. It was a great thrill to photograph their stunning racehorses at altitude in Borana, their muscled bodies set against the plains below".
