World class photos of Golden Eagle Festival

From ancient times, when the first snowfall arrives in September, the hunters gather for celebrating their successful hunting together and arranging time for learning from each other. This ancient way of gathering named Golden Eagle Festival was first organized back in 1999 with only 70 eagle hunters. This year is the 20th anniversary of Golden Eagle Festival in western Mongolia.

Now we are inviting you to read and take journey through his globally recognized photos of Golden Eagle Festival in last several years. 

 

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”
