DAVID YARROW - CHANGING LANES
Following huge success at Maddox Gallery London in November 2021, Maddox Gallery is pleased to bring ‘Changing Lanes’, the latest solo exhibition by contemporary photographic artist, David Yarrow, to Gstaad.
Presenting a variety of works captured throughout the pandemic, ‘Changing Lanes’ is at once an anthology to the Wild West and an homage to the very best in dramatic cinema. With many of the featured images being inspired by Hollywood hits – from American Beauty and Fargo, to Thelma & Louise and Bonnie and Clyde – ‘Changing Lanes’ takes the signature storytelling of David Yarrow to a new level with an array of icons, including Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Ciara and Russell Wilson.
Acting as a metaphor for David Yarrow’s evolution as a contemporary artist, ‘Changing Lanes’ marks a shift in focus from the art of capturing the natural world to the power of visual storytelling. With all featured images of the wild being punctuated by the narrative of the mythical cowboy or the final frontier, David Yarrow’s latest work plays with cultural iconography, transcending borders and transporting viewers beyond to a world where sublime natural beauty, history and cinematic drama collide.
On creating the work on show within ‘Changing Lanes’, David Yarrow commented “storytelling, whether behind the scenes or within the photograph itself, has always been a vital component to my work and Changing Lanes is representative of that. There are so many photographs that I’ve taken in the last year that I don’t think I could have made a couple of years ago. I have always fought for my work with wildlife to offer a little more, but in many ways, my latest images have been even more of a challenge because the stakes are much higher. There are so many moving parts, multiple characters and so many talented people not to let down; it’s a style of photography that I’ve found to be so exciting”.
