Juan Arias wants to make a photographic series that can highlight the importance of preserving and protecting wolves. The wolf is a common symbol in mythologies and cosmologies of peoples throughout Europe and where it has different perceptions given to the duality it generates. The wolf could represent different concepts such as fertility and destruction. Fear or veneration. The wolf, as a symbol, is highly attached to culture.
But Juan Arias would also like to give a chance to a non-explicit reflection, to give the opportunity of thinking this images as an analogy about human migratory processes which have a lot in common with wolves migration. In both cases, it is important for him to achieve the potential of their inherent benefits and reducing the negative effects of their arrival.
