24-year-old photographer Asher Svidensky recently traveled to west Mongolia with the intention of documenting the lives of traditional Kazakh eagle hunters, people who tame eagles for the purpose of hunting smaller animals.

These stunning photographs symbolize the potential future of the eagle hunting tradition as it expands beyond a male-only practice.
