The Future Eagle Hunters of Mongolia

Last year, photographer and journalist Asher Svidensky travelled to Mongolia to document the Kazakh Eagle Hunters that lived in the western region of Mongolia.

Svidensky spent days with the eagle hunters’ families, learning about their way of life and how future generations will preserve the ancient tradition. The photos and story went viral and have been published in publications around the world. Svidensky was praised not only for his incredible photography but the storytelling and insights he shared.
