Most commonly known as evil villains from childhood fairytales, wolves have long been the subject of strange myths, causing many humans to fear them. Opening March 22nd, Living with Wolves sets out to debunk cultural misconceptions of these elusive creatures. Living among a pack of wolves at the edge of Idaho’s Sawtooth Wilderness, Jim and Jamie Dutcher spent years in a tented camp intimately observing the social hierarchy and behavior of the famous Sawtooth Pack. Now exquisite, large-scale photographs bring you closer than ever before to each individual pack member, and invite you to explore each wolf’s role within their interconnected social group. Experience the selection of pack leaders, the birth of pups, and the mourning ritual following the loss of a pack member. Plus, learn how the reintroduction of wolves has played a key role in balancing and managing the ecosystem of Yellowstone National Park and beyond.
This exhibition was organized by the nonprofit organization Living with Wolves.
