Julian Schnabel: In The Course of Seven Days

Love him or hate him and/or his work, this short film about Julian Schnabel is nicely done…

Just finished this today. Excellent slave narrative with explicit descriptions of the harshness of slave life in the American south in the 19th century. It’s tough to get through in places, but well worth it.

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.
