ephemera west 2: elephant/under construction

 Imagery by John R. Campbell

One writer's digital observations of nature/culture interactions. Images from the Portland Zoo, Portland, OR, March, 2010. In part, a documentation of barriers: bars, glass, and plastic. In part, a mingling of the observer and the observed. Always, traces of a wild otherness, and remnants of animal dignity.

"Elephant/Under Construction" is part of an ongoing photographic project, Ephemera West. Other elements document the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC and the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport, OR. To view these images, click on the links below.

High quality prints of the images are available for purchase. (Printer: Epson Stylus Photo R2400; paper: Epson Ultra Premium Photo Paper Glossy) Prices are variable depending on the size of the image, but are quite reasonable, all fifty dollars or under.
