The change in scale transformed the doe-eyed and innocent dog into an elephant in a china shop. Although the photographs in the Elephant series are touching and familiar, they also remind us that owning a pet is not necessarily just a pleasant thing, and that even a small animal can sometimes seem imposing and demanding. The pictures also make visible the less frequently admitted fact that pets themselves cannot decide with whom they live and what demands are placed on them; their lot is to adapt to the customs and lifestyle of their owner.
