Dovima and the Elephants

This is perhaps one of my most favourite photographs in existence. I find this image so totally glamorous, and intriguing. I suppose if I researched it hard enough I could find out the situation behind the photo, but that would take away part of the wonder. Where are these elephants? What is the connection of this woman with these elephants? How on earth did they get the elephants to synchronise like that?!
…Plus, I totally adore elephants (all but 2 of the pictures on my bedroom wall are of elephants) Aren’t they just amazing animals?
