Following Hamid Sardar, Harvard scholar of Inner Asian Studies and professional photographer, we embark on a memorable journey into the culture of Kazakh eagle hunters in Mongolia’s Altai foothills. Exploration photography is not just about capturing beautiful portraits and breath-taking landscapes; it’s about uncovering the DNA of a land and its people and letting it become the guiding principle in our art.
In Kazakh culture, art and indeed memory itself, is inconceivable without this totem-like connection to the fabulous eagle that seem to tap into early layers of human consciousness and the religious experiences of the archaic hunter. For nomads who still live in the wild, survival is based on imitation of wild beasts such as the eagle. Man hunts, heals and moves through nature by emulating the intelligence of animals. This spiritual connection between man and animal will be the guiding theme of our workshop.
