PALANI MOHAN – BOOK LAUNCH
Hunting with Eagles – Book Launch
Palani Mohan will talk about his new book Hunting With Eagles. In the Realm of the Mongolian Kazakhs.
Kazakh nomads have been grazing their livestock near the Altai Mountains in western Mongolia for many hundreds of years. Here, in this desolate landscape, where temperatures plummet to minus 40 degrees Celsius in winter, live the last of the men who use eagles to hunt on horseback. Rugged, formidable, proud, the golden eagles share the same qualities as the men with whom they ride. Only the toughest survive here. Fascinated by the special bond that develops between hunter and eagle, photographer Palani Mohan has spent the last four years documenting the burkitshi, as the hunters are known in Kazakh.
Limited copies of Hunting with Eagles photobook will be available for sale, and for each book sale, 10$ will be donate directly to Anjali House.
