Title: The Elephants in the Room

Location: Erindi, Namibia, 2018

You’ve heard of the phrase, “the Elephant in the room”? It’s meant to signify an enormously important topic that is very obvious, but everyone chooses to ignore. Lately, there’s a lot of Elephants in the room. And if you decide to read on, I promise there’s a point to the following paragraphs. 

Most people are aware or have at least heard about one or more of the following: The decline in wildlife, the threats to our life-support ecosystems, our oceans, glaciers, forests. Historical loss of biodiversity, disease, droughts … I could go on. But I won’t. Because if you’ve read this much, you probably get the point. Though, gosh, it sure does sound apocalyptic sometimes when they’re listed out. But again, stick with me for a minute.

Now, all of this is incredibly overwhelming. I know. But if you’re feeling any connection to nature at all, I’m sure you must know at least a little something about any one of these topics I listed. Or at least you’re interested to learn more. All of them at once, well, that’s too much. But one at a time, maybe it’s easier to have a discussion with a friend starting with the idea of one vs. all. Right? 

Here’s my one request if you do bring this portrait into your home. If you gift the portrait, send the following along with it. 

I want you to assign a specific “Elephant” topic to each of the Elephants in the photograph. It can be anything really. You don’t have to stick with the few examples that I’ve listed so far, but it should be something related to the state of nature in the world. Something worth discussing, debating, or learning more about. Examples you could use might include “How to help save the jungles of Borneo”. Or “Should people be allowed to hunt wildlife for conservation?” Or “What is the Paris Agreement, and will it make a difference?” But you don’t have to choose such heavy topics, if you don’t want to. You could start small. “What’s a good way to support wildlife locally?”

Now, here’s the key to the whole thing. Each time someone visits, whenever that’s a thing again, if they ask about the photograph, I want you to ask them to pick any Elephant at random. Once they do, you can tell some modified and personal version about the reason for the title of the artwork “The Elephants in the Room” and start a conversation about the topic assigned to the Elephant they picked. At least this way… we can finally start talking about the Elephants in the Room… I guess I’m just asking you to start with literal Elephants on the wall.

What are people saying about my prints?

Wilder, Twinning, & Motherhood
The stories and mission you share makes these prints even more special than just a beautiful photograph. These photographs bring to life memories, experiences, and dreams that we look forward to telling our children about!

Emily, USA

To me your photos are like a very tasteful crossing between a photograph and a painting. And the fact that the animals are portrait as serious as I'm used to see a human portrait being done but without losing the wilderness layer.

ONLINE vs. OFFLINE

I’ve been selling my prints offline in galleries, exhibitions, and world-renowned art shows to private collectors for years.

Now that I'm selling online, I can offer a much greater selection at standard sizes at even more accessible prices. More below about sizes.
