Close Encounters

Inuit-Family-1024x307

Scottish photographer David Yarrow made his name shooting iconic images of footballers like Diego Maradona for the 1986 World Cup in Mexico.

He has consequently become better known for his black and white images of the animals of East Africa.

His work has a graphic but intimate feel that allows you to sense the personalities of the individual creatures in his pictures. While his images of people have a kind of animal quality to them, reminding us of how close we are to nature.
