About The Exhibit
The G2 Gallery is thrilled to present Susan McConnell: On the Shoulders of Giants, a photography exhibit about the grandeur, power and beauty of land’s largest mammal, the African elephant. As a neuroscientist and Professor of Biology at Stanford University, Susan combines her expertise in animal behavior with her artistic eye to capture intimate family moments within the herd. Susan hopes to inspire empathy for these magnificent creatures as she believes emotion is a powerful tool in conservation. Susan McConnell: On the Shoulders of Giants will be on view through Saturday, August 5.
