|The reverse reflection of an elephant's eye and upper trunk is a transformation of depth and mood. The now offset eyes signal how wrong things have gone. Maybe it's a personal lament, or for all elephants, or for all the world. It's, as I read it, a sorrowful meditation. And how can we humans, woeful architects of its plight, look him or her in the eye. I see the white overlay as tears or a guitar, as in "while my guitar gently weeps." A single image essay. Disturbingly beautiful, creative, harsh and stunning.
Personal favorite of the challenge.
