Piece description from the artist

This moment right here was very intense. Growing up in South Africa where my family and I visited national parks often, these gentle giants became one of my favorite animals to photograph. The game changes, however, when you're the one driving, instead of Dad, while also trying to take photos. You become observant of their behavior & body language but can still never be too sure when you should just drop the camera and get out of their way. On this day I was alone in my car. The elephant bull casually came strolling towards me and I started taking photos of his face. My car was in gear and foot on the petrol just in case he might have become annoyed. I still can't believe I actually got this shot – I was shaking like a leaf! He carried on walking behind my car without paying much attention to me and we parted ways on good terms.
