Wolf Empire: An Intimate Portrait of a Species

Extraordinary photos that expose the elusive world of fur and teeth, light and shadow, and wolf behavior seldom seen by the human eye.

From award-winning photographer Scott Ian Barry comes Wolf Empire–the most comprehensive and stunning visual record of wolves ever published in black-and-white photography. In this world of fur and teeth, texture and shape, light and shadow, Barry creates a highly intimate look at wolves and their often mystifying way of life.

wolfempire02a wolfempire02b wolfempire02c wolfempire02d wolfempire02e wolfempire02f wolfempire02g wolfempire02h wolfempire02iEach high-quality photograph is accompanied by a narrative in which Barry relates the circumstances that led to the taking of the photo, or some unique personal observation about wolf behavior gathered from his more than thirty years of experience as a wildlife photographer. His great reverence for these magnificent animals comes through in frame after frame of wolves in varying degrees of harmony and aggression, excitement and tranquility, cooperation and solitude–all part of their experience and essential to their survival. Barry’s photographs show wolves for the individuals they are, a species as diverse as humans.

Thanks to the thousands of people who participated in this assignment! What better way to understand the real impact of climate change than to ask a global community of photographers to share their stories about it. Our hope was to harness the power of collaborative storytelling and have a real impact on both policy and public perception.
