This Deluxe edition, which retails at £1,500, was donated to IAPWA by David and his team to help raise money for our Claws Out campaign against lion exploitation in South Africa. The funds raised through the sale of this book will help us to take the Claws Out campaign on the road, reaching colleges and universities across the UK and raise awareness about the atrocities facing captive lions in South Africa – the cub petting, canned hunting and lion bone trades.
This is a stunning collection of unparalleled nature photography, spanning seven continents, by one of the world’s foremost photographers. Capturing the splendour and soul of what remains wild and free in our world through incredibly intimate, close enough to touch, portraits, Wild Encounters chronicles legendary photographer David Yarrow’s photographic exploits in the field. Driven by a passion for sharing and preserving the Earth’s last great wild cultures and species, Yarrow is as much a conservationist as a photographer and artist. His work has transcended wildlife photography, and is now collected and shown as fine art in some of the most famed galleries around the world.
Yarrow goes Pole-to-Pole, continent-to-continent, mountain to tundra to primordial jungle, taking the familiar lions, elephants, tigers and polar bears and creating iconic images that connect with us at a highly emotional level.
This is a special limited edition book and represents a triumph for esteemed publishers Rizzoli. The book comes inside a beautiful shell, making it a stunning addition to a home.
