Currently, there are about 250 Kazakh eagle hunters of Western Mongolia, who live in one of the most remote regions of one of the most remote countries. For centuries, they have used golden eagles to hunt prey like wolves during the bleak winter months, an extraordinary example of a relationship between humans and semi wild animals. I’m one of the lucky photographers traveled to this region in mid June this year, photographing a family of the most experienced Kazakh eagle hunters. Note the senior hunter on the right, he has won numerous medals for eagle hunting, he was wearing a gorgeous wolf skin overcoat hand-made from 5 wolves he hunted.
