Eagle hunters, reindeer herders from remotest earth coming to Bangkok gallery

The lens of a 38-year-old Thai photographer tells of his adventures from the Altai Mountains to the borders of Mongolia, where he encountered nomadic reindeer herders and eagle hunters.

People and Their World is an upcoming exhibition of works by Jatenipat Ketpradit, aka JK Boy, who over seven years traveled to faraway lands to capture the lives of tribal people. 

At the heart of the Altai Mountains l, where the borders of Kazakhstan and Mongolia meet, JK Boy encountered the Burgedchin, a group of hunters that have handed down the use of golden eagles to hunt prey for over 250 years. Under  falling snow at the Mongolian-Russian border, he met the Tsaatan, one of the last remaining groups of nomadic reindeer herders that have maintained the tradition for thousands of years.
