I grew up in Syracuse and my home is a short distance from the Rosamond Gifford Zoo. I have been going to the zoo since I was little. Whenever I visit, I always look forward to seeing the Asian elephants. I’ve been going there so much that I have become familiar with the elephant exhibit and its location.

My mother is from Cambodia, and they have Asian elephants there. On my first visit to Cambodia I was able to ride an elephant. They had one at a temple, and allowed tourists to ride it. You had to go up these steps to get on top and it had a wooden seat.

For the poster I wanted viewers to experience what I see, when visiting the elephants. I like that I included families. They’re coming together, grandparents and children, and they’re all enjoying their time at the zoo.
