Staged photography is a complicated genre, especially if you want to show long bygone era. Even a small detail can spoil the impression of the photograph and to deprive its value. American photographer David yarrow (David Yarrow) never allows himself such failures — of its work, stylized under old times, thorough and incredibly atmospheric. (Caution! Nude).
Photographer David yarrow was born in 1966 in the ancient Scottish city of Glasgow. Photography he became interested in during his school years, and in 20 years was the first major work in the publication "the London times". A real high point for David was the trip to the finals of the world Cup in Mexico city, where the young photographer shot a time of the triumph of Diego Maradona.
The, the historical instantly made Jarrow a celebrity and him were vying to invite the coverage of various sporting events. David took off as baseball games in the United States and the Olympic games — his professionalism was highly appreciated by the leading sports magazines of the world.

A little later, yarrow decided to get away from narrow specialisation, he began to remove the wild nature of the United States and Africa, received recognition in this field. Now the photographer lives and works in Los Angeles, United States, preferring animal photography and staged photo in the style of different historical periods.
Interesting, but even taking scenes from the Wild West or the gangster life of the era of "prohibition", David often uses animal photography that makes his work even more spectacular.
One love David — Africa. The photographer has traveled to the dark continent and down and shot in places where to it is untouched by a professional photographer. Often yarrow's life hung in the balance — especially when they had to work in the regions affected by military conflicts.
But the photographer always believed that a good shot is worth the risk and it has not stopped even in the presence of harsh, naked men, who had not seen the earlier cameras, but perfectly familiar with the AK-47.
Pictures of David can be compared with the works of the famous American filmmaker of the late 19th century John Robbed. Sometimes it seems that the cowboys and stagecoaches on the images to yarrow look more authentic real.
