Encounter

£200.00

Product description

The Encounter Book is a collection of 87 powerful black and white photographs of wildlife and indigenous communities. The rich imagery in the book is accompanied by David’s contextual narrative, which unearths stories from his trips to some of the most remote corners of the globe. We learn of his penchant for using scents to lure Kenyan wildlife towards his camera lens, his face-to-face confrontation with a brown bear in Alaska and the patience and resolve required to capture his iconic picture of a Great White Shark in False Bay, Cape Town.

The book successfully conveys David’s appetite to get both physically and spiritually close to the personalities of dangerous animals and isolated communities; he is not afraid to go that extra mile.

African imagery is at the heart of Encounter and 10% of all of David Yarrow Photography’s sales go to Tusk Trust; an organisation that funds wildlife conservation, community development and environmental education programmes across Africa. This 176-page large-scale book is a luxurious addition to anyone’s coffee table.

This book has a few gift dedications on the title page (see photo 4) but otherwise is in near pristine condition in the original slipcase.
