Vanishing Giant by Emma Morgan
In November of 2016, Emma volunteered at The Elephant Nature Park in Northern Thailand. Currently home to 71 Asian elephants (alongside hundreds of rescued cats, dogs, and livestock), the park focuses on rescuing elephants from tourism, illegal logging and circuses.
Emma has created this series of drawings and prints from her experience working at the park for a week, in an attempt to enlighten others of its efforts, and also to discuss the effects that tourism currently has over the Asian elephant.
A small percentage of funds raised at the exhibition will be donated to the ENP at the end of 2017.
