Mali Elephants

For my current project I am traveling in the Sahel region of Mali, at the edge of the Sahara, near Tombouctou. I will be photographing endangered desert elephants - the last population in West Africa. My work will complement groundbreaking research and conservation efforts by The Wild Foundation, Save the Elephants, USAID and the Mali government. I will post occasional updates from the field via sat phone as well as a few digital images to my website. Because I am primarily shooting film for this project, most of the photographs will not be available for viewing until after I return to the states.View new photography at www.carltonward.com
