    About The Work

    This limited edition photograph is part of a black-and-white series published in the book Walking Thunder—In the Footsteps of the African Elephant by Cyril Christo and Marie Wilkinson. The project is meant to raise awareness about the imminent extinction of the elephant: today only about 400,000 elephants remain, and if they continue to be slaughtered at this rate, they could be extinct by as early as 2020. Christo and Wilkinson have dedicated this series to their son Lysander, who loves elephants, saying, "What does the future of the elephant have to do with the future of childhood? Everything!"
