LONDON.- Maddox Gallery opened its new Westbourne Grove gallery space with an inaugural exhibition dedicated to the work of the world’s leading wildlife photographer, David Yarrow.

The exhibition, The Untouchables, at the new 4,000 square foot Maddox Gallery, Westbourne Grove, opened to the public from 15 September for a three week run until 5 October.

David Yarrow has built a world-class reputation for producing images of the planet’s most remote landscapes, cultures and endangered animals. His methods for enticing dangerous animals near enough to his lens for the best photograph include researching which animal is most attracted to which scent and then coating his camera in it as he lays in wait.

In August 2017 Yarrow travelled to North Korea in his relentless pursuit to photograph some of the world’s most uncharted territory. Travelling to the hinterlands of arguably the most secretive country in the world and virgin territory for Western photographers, David has called it the most demanding assignment of his career.

David’s work has been exhibited by some of the world’s leading galleries and his images are among some of the most sought after works in nature photography. David has a global book deal with Rizzoli New York, and in 2016 produced a flagship book named ‘Wild Encounters’ featuring work from seven continents and many of the Earth’s most endangered species. The foreword was written by HRH The Duke of Cambridge and all author royalties from the book go to Tusk Trust. Amazon awarded it “Best Art and Photography book of 2016”. Alongside Rizzoli, David launched the book in a series of events across the world in the last quarter of 2016, including exhibitions at Fotografiska in Stockholm, Leonhard’s Gallery in Antwerp, Holden Luntz in Palm Beach and at London’s Somerset House.

In April 2017 at the annual Tusk Gala in New York, David’s images raised $175,000 at auction, including two lots, which sold for $50,000 each, cementing his status as one of the most coveted artists in his field.

In May 2017, at Sotheby’s photography auction in London, his iconic picture, Mankind, was sold for £60,000 (the highest price of the hundred lots on auction).

Born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1966, David is now considered one of the world’s leading fine art photographers. At the age of 20, he captured the now iconic image of Diego Maradona holding the World Cup at the 1986 final and the picture was syndicated across the globe becoming instantly recognisable. Following an eight year period as a stockbroker, David decided to fully devote his time to photography, focusing on his passion for wildlife and conservation.

Maddox Gallery opened its new Westbourne Grove space following the enormous success of its two Mayfair galleries that opened in 2015 and 2016.
