I recently was given the opportunity to photograph two of Midcoast Maine’s newest residents, Rosie and Opal. Rosie and Opal live at Hope Elephants, a wonderful new elephant rescue organization based in Hope, Maine (I definitely recommend going to their site to learn more and also to find out answers to questions such as whether Maine is too cold for elephants).
I’m very excited about the results from my initial shoot and look forward to visiting again and seeing where this project goes. Please let me know what you think, as always.
I’m even more excited to announce that this body of work was selected for the new “Animals: Real or Discovered” at the Davis Orton Gallery in Hudson, NY. The exhibition runs from June 28th (this Friday) until July 28th, with an opening reception this coming Saturday, June 29th, from 6-8 pm. I unfortunately cannot make the opening reception for reasons that will be disclosed in the next post…but if any of you out there can make it to the gallery or the opening, please report!
