“Your best picture is always the one you have never taken.
It is always ahead of you.” 

— David Yarrow

We’re pleased to announce the representation of David Yarrow. Known for his oversized, monochromatic images, David’s approach is as immersive as it can be. Both his Wild West and Wildlife series are now available in person at Sorrel Sky Durango and at SorrelSky.com. Several of his new pieces were shot in Durango at the historic Diamond Bell Salon and with the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.

Born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1966, David Yarrow took up photography at an early age. As a 20-year-old, he found himself working as a photographer for The London Times on the pitch at the World Cup Final in Mexico City. On that day, he took the famous picture of Diego Maradona holding the World Cup. Many years later David established himself as a fine art photographer by documenting the natural world from new perspectives and the last nine years have been career-defining.

“David’s photographs stop me in my track … he consistently places himself at the right place, at the right time …” 

— Shanan Campbell, Owner of Sorrel Sky Gallery

Watch David as he photographs amazing animals and amazing people, in amazing places.

The scenes David captures are the result of two major factors. The first is spadework. The second is access. He and his team put in countless hours doing research and scouting for locations, initiating and maintaining connections with local, national, and international public figures to photograph some of the world’s most unreachable and at times dangerous environments. The final image may be one of only two or three that he feels is good enough to make available each year. The results are intimate, evocative, bringing the viewer into close proximity with people, places, and wildlife that they may never encounter on their own. His powerful, immersive photography of life on earth is distinctive and has earned him an ever-growing following among art collectors. 

Listen to the incredible stories behind David’s iconic images.

Shanan Campbell, owner of Sorrel Sky Gallery, shared her reaction to David’s work, and the energy he personally brings to the gallery. “David’s photographs stop me in my track … the combination of the actual size of each print, the lighting, subject, and perspective. He consistently places himself at the right place, at the right time, and then shares that with us. His personal commitment to push himself to capture the best image and his drive to capture the next amazing image add to the vibrance and energy we each feel when we stand in front of his work.”
