Hamid Sardar
Shamans & Hunters of Mongolia

Hamid Sardar-Afkhami is an explorer, photographer, filmmaker and a scholar of Tibetan and Mongol languages. Inspired by the pioneers of ethno-photography during the Age of Exploration, in 2000 he set out to live with nomadic tribes in Mongolia and journeyed with them for eight years.

“We exist in relation to three things,” a Duhalar shaman told Hamid Sardar, “the forest, wild animals, and our ancestor spirits. Once we lose the connection to these things, we invite demons to take hold of our destiny.”
