The Patagonia Birds of Prey book gives people a striking look into the unique relationship between man and bird. For those who have seen the bird performance at Medieval Times and thinks they have an idea of what the sport entails, this collection of photography is eye-opening.
Shot on location in open deserts and home sanctuaries, the Patagonia Birds of Prey book chronicles "a topic dear to founder Yvon Chouinard," according to Hypebeast. Focusing in particular on "the birds of prey that have helped — and in some instances continue to help — man hunt for food," it features "the Kazakh eagle hunters in Western Mongolia, falconer Shawn Hayes in the Eastern Sierra region, and the release of Andean condors in Chile." The book is a visual treat for animal lovers.
