This is what future generations would say. An elephant will be just a memory, no more a reality. A dream where they will walk on Earth at peace, as they were born to do; kept alive only in our minds. In April 2016 105 tons of Ivory was burnt in Nairobi. It pained me to see how many elephants were brutally killed. It became a part of my life's work to capture on camera the remaining few living. This picture captures two things (depending on how you look at it): 1. They are walking out from heaven to earth and 2. The elephants slowly fading to nothing but memory. Their fragility is in our hands. This image gives a dramatic feel to many juxtapositions- power & frailty, gentility & giant.
