“I wanted it to provide an escape route, I wanted to make pictures that were fantastic and took you into another world, one that was brighter.
I started off with this idea”
(David LaChapelle – American photographer and film director, b.1963)

This was shot in the first courtyard of Amber fort located in Amer, a town nearby Jaipur in the Indian state of Rajasthan.
These elephants allows to climb the hill on a narrow passage and to reach the palace.
It was early in the morning when the moon was still at sight…

Haathi Mere Saathi (Elephants my Friends) is an Indian film and a favourite with children in the early 1970s.

I love elephants (Haathi in Hindi) since I am a child, they are my favorite animals, maybe because of Kipling’s “Jungle Book” or Disney’s cartoon “Dumbo”.

Nowadays Lord Ganesha stays around my neck in order to protect me.

This was shot in Jaipur’s Amber Fort in Rajasthan where elephants carry people from the village down the hill to the palace.
That morning there were so many of them that I never saw as many in my whole life, it was an unforgettable moment of happiness…

“Colonel Hathi’s March” is a song in the widely popular Walt Disney’s film The Jungle Book from 1967.
The song was sung by J. Pat O’Malley playing the part of “Colonel Hathi”.
The song was written by Disney staff songwriters, Robert and Richard Sherman.

It is written in the spirit of a light commentary on the pointlessness of constant military drilling.
