David Yarrow joins leading Super Stage line-upat The Photography Show and The Video Show 2020 Posted: 05/03/2020
David Yarrow joins leading Super Stage line-upat The Photography Show and The Video Show 2020

The Photography Show and The Video Show - the UK’s largest photography and moving image co-located event – has officially announced the seventh industry legend set to take to the Super Stage at Birmingham’s NEC, from 14-17 March 2020. Fine art photographer David Yarrow will join the likes of Chase Jarvis, Susan Meiselas and Ross Halfin.

David Yarrow’s evocative and immersive photography of life on earth is striking and distinctive, and has earned him an ever-growing following among art collectors. His large monochrome images, made in Los Angeles, are on display in leading galleries and museums across Europe and North America. In 2018, David’s famous image “The Wolf of Main Street” sold for $100,000 and was the highest bid for piece by a living photographer; more recently “78 Degrees North” went for an even more impressive $110,000. Yarrow’s position in the industry has been rewarded with a wide range of advisory and ambassadorial roles, including with conservation organisations like WildArk, plus brands including Land Rover and Nikon.

In his talk, David will take listeners on a photographic journey from the bone shaking cold of Antarctica to the sweltering jungles of Borneo, in search of content that transcends and forces us to reflect on our tenancy of planet earth. His large monochrome black and white images each come with a story of perseverance and creative courage. From these narratives will emerge a theme - one of following your passion no matter what. David has always wanted to take photographs that grab and hold the attention of others. He believes there is an insecurity in many artists that obsesses with the boundaries of what is worthy of public exposure. Paranoia of the mundane is perhaps David’s most defining characteristic.

Making up just one part of the extensive programme of talks and demos, the highly-acclaimed Super Stage sessions serve as a platform for some of the world’s best-known photographers and filmmakers to share stories about their work, what inspires them and the journey that took them to the top. The entire line-up has been carefully curated across a broad range of genres so enthusiasts and professionals can gain first-hand insight that they wouldn’t be able to get elsewhere.

Over four days, more than 32,000 professionals and enthusiasts will come together at Birmingham’s NEC, looking to be inspired by expert talks and live demos, keep up to date with the latest industry trends and source the very best kit at fantastic prices from some of the industry’s biggest players.
