In Greek mythology Atlas might have been able to lift this elephant, but this tiny Tarzan needed the strength of Atlas. His father was the elephant keeper and he has known the jumbo all his life. John Drysdale grew up in East Africa acquiring an early interest in both photography and animals. He trained at Guildford School of Art and has worked in photo-reportage, advertising and won numerous awards. But perhaps his most memorable work has been in the field of humour, working with children and animals in real life situations.
