"We are in Asia still do not fully understand, we hate or love these animals," says photographer Palani Mohan. He hails from the Indian state of Madras. Mohan five years shot elephants for their project "Vanishing giants". This series is an evidence of how humanity loves and hurts Asian elephants that live with people.

The project idea was born from mohana, when he lived in Thailand where elephants are forced to beg on the street — or revere as a deity in the monasteries. He realized that these animals are a symbol of Thailand, after whom call the hotel and even children, are also subjected to violence and exploitation.

The photographer visited more than ten countries and met with countless elephants, each of which, according to him, was his character. Most of all he liked young animals — they are very playful. However, Mohan emphasizes that the content of the elephant is a big responsibility, and to be treated with care, respect and care.
