About David Yarrow, Fine-Art Photographer
David Yarrow is recognised as one of the world’s best-selling photographers. In recent years, he has found his true comfort zone in capturing the world in a fresh and creative way, with philanthropy and conservation central to his passion to document.
David Yarrow was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1966. He took up photography at an early age and as a 20-year-old found himself working as a photographer for The London Times on the pitch at the World Cup Final in Mexico City. On that day, David took the famous picture of Diego Maradona holding the World Cup and, as a result, was subsequently asked to cover the Olympics and numerous other sporting events. His work in recent years is most distinctive and it has earned him an ever-growing following amongst art collectors. Yarrow is now represented by some of the top contemporary galleries around the world.
In September 2019, Rizzoli published their second book by David Yarrow. The book’s foreword was written by global NFL star Tom Brady and an afterword written by American cultural icon Cindy Crawford.
