There’s nothing I despise more than people who look down on other people. It sickens me how some people take so much pride in their education and call themselves well-educated yet their behaviors always suggest otherwise.
I’ll be back in a month.
The whole culture is telling you to hurry, while the art tells you to take your time. Always listen to the art.

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.
With the traditions typically laying in the hands of the boys and the men, the biggest surprise throughout the journey was Svidensky’s discovery of a young eagle huntress, 13-year-old Ashol Pan, the daughter of an experienced eagle hunter. These stunning photographs symbolize the potential future of the eagle hunting tradition as it expands beyond a male-only practice.
