Life on Earth: A Retrospective of Photography Disruptor David Yarrow

Life on Earth: A Retrospective of Photography Disruptor David Yarrow

have always wanted to take photographs that grab and hold the
attention of others. There is an insecurity in many artists that
obsesses with the boundaries of what is worthy of public exposure.
I acutely relate to this insecurity, and what many might consider
paranoia of the mundane is perhaps my most defining characteristic.
It is not the healthiest of dispositions, but it certainly makes
for a good personal edit.

A camera is simply a conduit to our souls and minds, and I
obsess far more about what is in front of the camera than the
mechanics inside it. It is, after all, just a piece of metal.

I am not a wildlife photographer; I am simply a photographer. I
may not accept wedding assignments and I have no appetite for
documenting flower or food arrangements, but I am subject agnostic
with just one caveat: the subject must interest or challenge me.
have never been more urgent, so I have been drawn
to these subjects. I want my work to showcase the breadth and
magnificence of life on our planet by taking readers on an
evocative and immersive journey that is distinctive. From the
inception of this project, I knew this was a lofty goal, but why
aim low?
