Elephant Parade London, 2010

The Elephant Parade in London commenced in May 2010 and is from the same organisation that ran the project on the previous page. This time around the scale and scope have dramatically increased with over 250 elephants being custom painted by an artist or celebrity and placed in central London. It's not difficult to track one down - they're often in small herds and kind of stand out. The one I really wanted to find was this one by Carrie Reichardt and Nick Reynolds which was found in the gardens of the Natural History Museum. It features a mind numbing amount of attention to detail and adds extra depth to the explanation of the plight of the Asian elephant by showing how it is persecuted for its ivory, blown up by landmines and more. And if you look carefully round the back you can see a little play on the Turner prize. 

More about the project can be found on elephantfamily.org
