On my desk is a gallery calendar entitled 'Nature' which offers a photograph each day of a wild animal or a wild space. When the African Elephant calf appeared, the paradox of his great size and strength and yet the fragility of his endangered species struck me. Then I began to imagine a world where the only representation of this wonderful animal is the polaroids of the past.
