Photographing the Stunning Wildlife of South Georgia with David Yarrow

Comment

British fine art photographer David Yarrow visited the island of South Georgia in the southern Atlantic Ocean to photograph the “mind-blowing” wildlife scenes found there. His trip and creative process are captured in this new 4.5-minute short film, titled “Yarrow: The Virtues of Monochrome.”

“There are few places left in the world that you can find yourself immersed in such a spectacle of nature,” says director Abraham Joffe. “The staggering sight of hundreds of thousands of penguins and seals, encircled by a cathedral of mountain peaks and hanging glaciers would leave even the most jaded person in total awe.”

“Arriving [at a] final frontier, wherever it is, can sometimes lead to something of a brain freeze,” Yarrow says in the film. “It really is so visually intoxicating, that for you to interpret it in a way that embodies your character and your traits is quite a challenge, because you’re almost screen-struck by what you’re seeing in front of you.

“And that’s why probably in a year I only take four or five pictures that I think get above that threshold, get above that bar.”

With a goal of capturing a single image that conveys a sense of depth and a sense of scale, Yarrow created this photo, which he titled, “The Breakfast Club”:
