Photographer Charles Fréger captured a series of images featured elephants that were on their way to the annual festival Jaipur, Rajasthan.
Each elephant is decked out, their skin painted, jewelry hanging from the ears, bells put around their ankles, and their backs covered in brightly colored material. The elephants are working animals that carry tourists regularly on a 12-mile round trip to the Amber Palace. All in all, there are 80 of these elephants that give rides to up to 900 visitors a day.
