In the artist’s own words: “A herd of elephants trek across the grasslands of Serengeti National Park as the sun begins to set. Their majestic figures evoke an air of elegance and grace despite their massive scale. The rays of sun poignantly protruding through the clouds shroud the landscape and elephants in deep, rich, color. Observing these elephants interact with one another in this beautiful moment, is something I will never forget. It was incredible to witness the herd progressing together as a protective and close-knit family all looking after the inquisitive calves that trundled along, meandering about buoyantly.”
