Ivory and the ghost of elephants past. by 


A photograph taken using glass elephant and old ivory necklace to produce an evocative and haunting image. I intended to convey the death of the elephant that had produced the ivory necklace.

The importation of ivory, and the selling of ivory products, is banned now in most countries in the world. This necklace belonged to my mother and dates from the 1950s.
