Arctic Wolves in a Warming World

Ronan Donovan

The Exhibition

If your subject is scared of you then your images will reflect their fear – your images won’t be a true representation of that human or animal. Most of the imagery of wild wolves depicts them afraid, at the longest end of a telephoto lens. At a distance. But not in the High Arctic with this family of Arctic wolves. These are wolves, unafraid, acting as though civilization doesn’t exist. This series is a window into the day-to-day lives of what is normally an elusive social predator in hopes of connecting viewers to this imperilled ecosystem – the High Arctic.

The Photographer

A field biologist turned wildlife photographer and filmmaker, Ronan has worked on all seven continents, with experiences ranging from documenting wild chimpanzees in Uganda to chronicling the life of one of Yellowstone’s iconic species, the grey wolf, for the May 2016 Yellowstone issue of National Geographic magazine.
