Last Sept 2016, I have visited the unforgiving wilds of far western Mongolia, where I was fortunate enough to photograph the Hunter and their mighty Eagles. Though the Mongolian landscape are spectacular and vast, it is an unforgiving place to call home, where the winter temperature plummets to a bitter -40 to 50 degrees Celsius.

These eagle hunters on the edge of the world perhaps are used to the temparature but for a foreign photographer trying to document and capture the Realm of the Mongolian Kazakhs is quite a challenge in all aspects. The freezing cold wind and temparature, the need to go deep into the wild to find the real hunters and the technical aspect of photographing the Kazaks images flying with their horses and mightly Eagle is a challenge but a worthy endeavor.

It’s important for people not to forget about people like these eagle hunters on the edge of the world. These eagle hunting is a lonely, cold, old way of living. But for the Kazakhs, eagle hunters is not merely a proud title to them, but their way of life.
