Elephants Just Are 1. 2017


In order to show elephants as they are, I travelled to Amboseli National Park in Kenya and focused on the elephants in the park. I chose a white background to show elephants’ true nature, their very essence. I also wanted to show that this biggest land mammal needs space in which it looks quite small – because it is when they have undisturbed space that these highly sentient mammals behaves naturally.
