Haute Living, LOUIS XIII And Maddox Gallery Host Dinner For Fine Art Photographer David Yarrow

Swept in the creative atmosphere of Art Basel Miami, Haute Living partnered with LOUIS XIII and Maddox Gallery to celebrate the oeuvre of British fine-art photographer, David Yarrow.

Yarrow’s images – striking black-and-white portraits of wildlife – adorned the Fontaine Ballroom of the Fontainebleau Hotel Miami. A slew of prominent guests marveled at the artwork during the opening VIP cocktail party. Among the attendees were Haute Living Co-founder Seth Semilof, Maddox Gallery Owner Jay Rutland, Eduardo Serio of Black Jaguar-White Tiger Foundation, LOUIS XIII Ambassador Victor Blanquart, and Fontainebleau COO Philip Goldfarb. Yarrow was also in attendance.

“This [is] a trip down memory lane as I stayed there in 1994 whilst doing a photo shoot for American Express,” Yarrow wrote on his website about his pop-up exhibit at the iconic South Beach hotel, which once also served as the backdrop for The Bodyguard.

The fete continued with a delectable dinner at Stripsteak by Michael Mina, where guests enjoyed a three-course menu. A live auction for one of Yarrow’s photographs raised $27,000 to benefit the Black Jaguar-White Tiger Foundation, which rescues big felines from dire circumstances. Rutland donated further $10,000 to the cause.

Yarrow’s pop-up exhibit will be available through December 10.
