To slumber is to sleep, sometimes especially to sleep lightly or to doze. A natural and periodic state of rest during which consciousness of the world is suspended. (Merriam-Webster dictionary) We spent over two hours photographing this Kenyan tusker named Craig watching him sleep and feed a few meters away.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
I have always been interested in photography and still have fond memories of working in my father's darkroom from a young age. Photography became a creative outlet for me throughout my life, especially while working in corporate. I honed my hobby while on holidays in the bush; my focus was on wildlife and what really captured my attention was the beautiful bounty of birds that grace the African bush. Now that I'm retired, I enjoy playing with various artistic avenues while capturing the picture and the creative editing processes afterwards. I love finding unexpected moments and translating that photograph into something beautiful.
