Peter Beard
Large Tusker, Black and White Photograph of Elephant in Nature in Kenya, Africa

1960-1990

About

Large tusker "Elephant" photograph by Peter Beard - 9” x 13.5” — is a signed gelatin silver print and dedicated ("greetings @xmas 1990 from Peter Beard), top of photo (left corner). Beard's photographs of elephants shot in East Africa -- Kenya -- reveal, as per the former director of the Tsavo Research Project, just how close "the ecology of the elephant is ... to that of man than to any other animal." As a kind of elephant whisperer, Beard offers up his understanding and shows us a very human mammal. Known for his images of Africa, Peter Beard’s interest in Africa can be traced to his trips to the continent in the 1950s and ’60s, which he viewed as escapes from repressiveness and high society into which he was born. Beard later turned to photo-collage, adding to the Elephant series creative touches including news clippings and his own blood in some instances.
