WOLF EMPIRE An Intimate Portrait of a Species SCOTT IAN BARRY
From award-winning photographer Scott Ian Barry comes Wolf Empire—the most comprehen- sive and stunning visual record of wolves ever published in black-and-white photography. In image after breathtaking image of fur and teeth, texture and shape, light and shadow, Barry cre- ates a highly intimate look at a world seldom seen by the human eye.
Each extraordinary photograph is accompanied by an anecdote in which Barry relates the cir- cumstances 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 reverence for these magnificent animals comes through in frame after frame of wolves in vary- ing degrees of harmony and aggression, excitement and tranquility, cooperation and solitude. By inviting readers into this elusive universe, Barry encourages human beings to think of them- selves as part of a living planet, one that is better shared with wolves than without them.
Scott Ian Barry’s photographs have been published by various publications and organizations, including the New York Times, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Sierra Club. He lives in Woodstock, New York.
