Death's pass, the Alps. In the all county there are 10 wolves packs, from 'Pian del Louv'

Course: BA Documentary Photography, University of Wales, Newport

 

‘Wolves are presences, worries in the shepherds minds, their eyes are like glowing embers in the darkness.’ In the last 20 years wolves have returned to the Western Alps: this is possible because while deer, chamois, wild pigs and wolves were re-conquering the Alps, thousands of mountain dwelling men and women were abandoning these areas for the factories and suburban areas of Italian cities.

Wolves have become the scapegoat for all the problems that afflict these areas, and coexistence seems like a hopeless utopian ideal. The aim of this project is to explore and document the battle between nature and humans.
