Maddox Gallery is pleased to present ‘Pride Rock,’ a major exhibition of David Yarrow’s latest photographic works.

For more than two decades, legendary British photographer David Yarrow has been putting himself in harm’s way to capture immersive photography of the world’s most revered and endangered species. Now, carefully curated for the first time, ‘Pride Rock’ will offer a compelling retrospective of Yarrow’s spectacular work in the wild, as well as his elaborate storytelling portraiture.

Featuring over 40 of Yarrow’s most iconic photographs, ‘Pride Rock’ highlights the beauty of the endangered planet and the art of narrative as conveyed by one of the most relevant fine art photographers in the world. Yarrow says: “The balance now suits my personality and has no doubt helped my creativity. Both genres can play off each other and spark ideas.”

Coinciding with the release of his second book – a compendium of some of his greatest works published by Rizzoli – the exhibition will take place at both Maddox Gallery Mayfair and Maddox Gallery Westbourne Grove; offering unprecedented access into Yarrow’s stunning archive.

 “There are no universal rules in photography—only personal ones. My central premise is that if photography was a language, then focus would be the most important word in that lexicon. Focus deliberately includes or it deliberately excludes, and it should be emphatically clear what the photographer is trying to say.”

With his images heightening awareness of these species and raising huge sums for charity and conservation, ‘Pride Rock’ celebrates one of the most relevant and evocative photographers in the world today.
