About the artwork

This photograph represents a parade of wild elephants traversing the plains of the African savannah. Magnified by a surprising play of light and shade revealed through the use of black and white, the elephants appear within a vast and contrasting natural landscape. The photographer pays tribute to the beauty and dignity of this species and promises to reveal to us the most essential elements of nature.Sensitive to the powerful majesty of these mammals, the artist confronts them in a visual paradox in which they are also shown to be highly vulnerable. This is because this silent and solemn march also proves to be a testimony to their progressive extinction. Protected natural areas are becoming more rare as human intervention increases, wild animals soon come to lack resources: ?Everywhere that humankind progresses, nature regresses.? The sublime and the tragic are thus combined in this timeless image that re-establishes, if only for a moment, the supremacy of the animal kingdom within the natural order.
