• Ghosts 1

    Amboseli National Park, Kenya. The idea for Ghosts dawned on me when I was waiting for elephants to appear on the plain in front of me. After an hour or so of waiting I wondered, what if they did not appear…ever. Would I miss them? How would I remember them? This time they appeared, of course, but I imagined I was photographing an apparition, such was my mindset.

    Amboseli National Park, Kenya. In this almost treeless park there is in fact one tree near which elephants sometimes gather. Occasionally you can see around 100 elephants here – a sight that is getting increasingly rare. Come to think of it, the tree will still be there after the elephants have become phantoms.

    Amboseli National Park, Kenya. They appeared from seemingly nowhere, coming slowly but surely. They arrived in a line at first but then formed a front. Like elephants united against danger. After a pause, they sailed noiselessly by, taking their strangeness with their world.

    Amboseli National Park, Kenya. The elephants crossed the track and all I could see was their rears. They made interesting shapes, mysterious mounds moving sedately, like an adagio movement in a symphony.

    Amboseli National Park, Kenya. There was a small family of elephants, moving and grazing alongside scattered bull elephants. When the group broke into a run, moving like one entity, I imagined it escaping Homo economicus and that bothered me. With each passing day, the economic machine roars louder and there is nothing one individual can do about it.

    Amboseli National Park, Kenya. A sight to inspire awe and wonder. A moving line of many elephants in all its grace and majesty. I sensed that the line was self-aware. I watched it float by and in that line fading imperceptibility into nothing, and in the overwhelming stillness that followed, I saw a metaphor for mortal existence.

    Amboseli National Park, Kenya. In the elephant line moving further and further away, I saw a metaphor for our failure to co-exist, and in the emptiness that followed, a memory knocked on my brain from somewhere and I was instructed to cherish it.
