Dovima with elephants by Richard Avedon


  1. This shot is often attributed to Parkinson - who did photograph Dovima - but I do not think he would have condoned the chained legs - - he was a great animal lover ( although he did breed Pigs for his Porkinson Bangers in Tobago - I remember visiting his Farm near Henley in the UK whilst I worked for him in the early 1960s - where he took many of his most gentle shots - and observing hoards of happy piglets with their mothers - romping in the straw and in the orchards )

    1. Many thanks for the information Angela Williams !!
