This large-scale installation projects a 3D elephant into the distance on an imaginary journey through the strange atmosphere of an urban jungle.

The animal emerges from a cloud of dust raised by his feet treading the ground. Engulfed in the vaulted passage, Ménestrier the elephant continues his slow and heavy journey through the archway. This installation explores the strangeness of the presence of a wild animal in an architectural context and the scale between the animal and the city.

This sounds (and looks) fabulous. I can just imagine the scene and noise from the description; it must be quite surreal. Very good work with the camera, too, with little signs of noise. I do like the floodlight pigeon on top of the arch.

Wow that is pretty amazing, I don't think I've ever seen anything like that.
A good overhead shot managing to get above the GUs.

The mighty elephant who stands there as if he is in charge & has all the power & telling the people what they should do. I have not seen anything like this before George, it is a superb shot of which you have captured the scene superbly. Well done.

Very interesting George, Sounds like a very good show, and your image catches the show and atmosphere very well, and no visible noise in the image at 3200 is impressive.
