My greatest friend'
© Science & Society
'My greatest friend' the elephant gets a special pat from the young girl. She had known the elephant all her life as it was owned by her family. 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.
