13th February – 10th March 2020
Maddox Gallery Gstaad
Promenade 7, 3780
Maddox Gallery presents ‘Living On Earth’ by world-renowned fine art photographer
David Yarrow. The exhibition, in partnership with LuxAviation, showcases Yarrow’s
most highly acclaimed pieces in addition to new releases that have recently been
added to his body of work.
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,
‘Living On Earth’ will offer a compelling retrospective of Yarrow’s spectacular work
in the wild as well as his elaborate storytelling portraiture.
Featuring over 30 of Yarrow's most iconic photographs, ‘Living on Earth’ 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.”
Over the last week of January, Yarrow was in Australia documenting the devastating
bush fires that have destroyed communities, wildlife and wildlands. Using the
striking and poignant images that he captured of the effects of the fire, Yarrow and
environmental non-profit organisation WildArk, launched the #KoalaComeback
Campaign to raise $2 million to support recovery efforts in Australia. Fifty percent of
the proceeds will be directed to Earth Alliance’s Australia Wildfire Fund, and
WildArk will use the remaining donations to support local organisations working on
wildlife rehabilitation and habitat restoration. The campaign has already received
celebrity endorsement from Chris Hemsworth, Cara Delevingne and Cindy
With his images heightening awareness of our planet, and his artwork continuing to
raise huge sums for charity and conservation, ‘Living on Earth’ celebrates one of the
most relevant and evocative photographers in the world today.
