“We saw this magnificent bull elephant for days. My patience with humans is rather thin but somehow with wild animals I can spend hours admiring them. He let us close and I had a feeling we could push the boundaries of intimacy for a bit. What you can't see on the picture is the whole shooting set: A Maasai tracker on my right shoulder, my guide on my left shoulder and the jeep behind us. My body is flat on the ground; down from the bank where he is standing tall looking at me; while eating breakfast. His eyes never left me for a second. I never felt so tiny and vulnerable in my life. As I was clicking the shutter, I already had the title of this picture in my head.” - Michel Ghatan
