"Nobody knows exactly when the Kazakhs tamed the Golden Eagle of Central Asia.

Herodotus refers to nomadic eagle hunters in 5th Century B.C. Marco Polo wrote about the Kazakhs in his "Travels" account. The name "Kazakh" dates as far back as the 13th century, meaning "independent", "free" and "nomadic", terms that perfectly define this legendary people, so famous for their pride and skills on the battlefield." —John Delaney

"You know—all those photos from birthdays and dinner parties when your eyes are half shut. But last year I found I was intrigued by an image I had made when a girl model blinked just as I was pushing the button. I started to think about it. Why was this intriguing?"—Erwin Olaf, Excerpt from Erwin Olaf's best shot, The Guardian, Thursday 26 March 2009 READ MORE VIEW ITEM
