Daniel Kordan

In this rapidly changing world, photographer Daniel Kordan transports us to a place where time seemingly stands still: the vast steppe of the Gobi Desert and the world of nomadic Mongolian Eagle Hunters. While the photos are contemporary, they depict people who live by age-old traditions. In this way, the hunters and Kordan are both preserving the dwindling art of hunting with golden eagles, which has been passed down through generations for thousands of years.

Kordan captures these horseback riders and their fine feathered friends in remarkably balanced compositions, constructing each image in a way that underscores its painterly qualities. He is a master of this discipline, regardless of whether the subjects are galloping full bore toward the viewer or standing majestically on a hilltop to survey the seemingly endless landscape below. From the traditional attire to the pristine expanses to the massive raptors taking flight from outstretched limbs, Kordan’s images leave us with the impression that these scenes could just as easily have existed a thousand years ago. The photographs speak volumes about the cultural significance – both past and present – of the Eagle Hunters.

Fascinated with photography from an early age, Kordan took a somewhat circuitous route to the profession through a career in the hard sciences. Eventually, his passion won out and his love for nature inspired him to become a full-time photographer. In addition to fine art photography, he now leads expeditions of aspiring photographers into nature, sharing his expertise to help them hone their skills.
Daniel Kordan grew up around idyllic nature near Moscow. He studied physics at the Institute of Physics and Technology and was working as a scientist before following his lifelong passion to become a professional photographer. Kordan’s work has earned him multiple awards, including a National Geographic Russia contest in 2013 and a Trierenberg Super Circuit award. His work has appeared in many international publications, and he has over 1.1 million followers on Instagram.
