EDITORS COMMENTS
In this black and white portrait captured by Colin Davey, we are transported back to the vibrant streets of England on a summer day in 1980. The photograph titled "Room On Top" showcases an extraordinary moment as one of David Smarts' majestic elephants confidently boards a bus bound for Earls Court. The image exudes a sense of wonder and intrigue, inviting us to ponder the unique relationship between humans and animals. The sheer size and power of the elephant juxtaposed against the humble double-decker bus creates a striking visual contrast that is both awe-inspiring and thought-provoking. Davey's choice to present this scene in black and white adds a timeless quality to the photograph, emphasizing its historical significance. It allows us to focus solely on the subject matter itself – an incredible creature embarking on an unexpected journey through urban landscapes. This print from Fine Art Storehouse serves as a reminder of our connection with nature, even within bustling city environments. It encourages us to appreciate moments where boundaries blur, offering glimpses into extraordinary encounters that challenge our perceptions. Whether displayed in homes or galleries, "Room On Top" captivates viewers with its powerful imagery and evocative storytelling. Through Colin Davey's lens, we are transported back in time while simultaneously being reminded of the enduring bond between humans and animals that continues to fascinate us today.
