Project Statement for Hope Elephants

Elephants and their ancestors have existed since times primordial, and close study reveals echoes of those ancient times. My photographs of the elephants residing at Hope Elephants, a home for older and injured elephants in Hope, Maine, and the richly textured folds of their skin, conjure up to me visions of dinosaur-trodden landscapes both real and imagined.

Hope Elephants is now closed due to the tragic death of its founder in late 2014.
