Tasha Lewis '12

"This elephant, whose name is Celeste, was my second large scale project using toned cyanotype. The purple color is rich and warm. I think is fits perfectly with the images of the skin of an elephant. I wanted her to be peeking out of the wall to show that she is curious, but this pose also allowed me to make her at full scale (for a teenage elephant) which was another one of my main goals." - Tasha Lewis '12.
