Hunting with Eagles: In the Realm of the Mongolian Kazakhs

“For many hundreds of years Kazakh nomads have been grazing their livestock near the Altai Mountains in western Mongolia. The Altai Kazakhs are unique in their tradition of using golden eagles to hunt on horseback. The lifestyle of these hunters, known in Kazakh as burtkitshis, is changing rapidly, and over the last fouryears photographer Palani Mohan has spent time with these men and their families, documenting a culture under threat”.
