Let’s TALK! #1

A lot of my photos include elements that for very obvious reasons people dislike. That’s just the nature of the situation and it’s natural for me to want to ducument the reality of the situation for the elephants be it good or bad. One of those issues is the use of bull hooks by the elephant carers in Sumatra. Some people argue (trust me they do) in the right hands and used correctly it is no problem while others argue that they should never ever be used and are a cruel method for directing an elephant. Well as my documentary work here keeps shifting gears and I find myself in more and more situations to actually help with my own projects I am quite interested to hear comments on this and the preferred alternatives. Please comment below…
