  • Photographer
    Helena Spinks, United Kingdom

Aisholpan first shot to fame in 2014 as a shy thirteen year old
learning how to hunt with eagles for the first time. Since then, she
has appeared in a major documentary film ‘The Eagle Huntress’,
which premiered to great acclaim, travelled the worlds’ film
festivals, and received the Asia Game Changer Award for breaking
gender barriers at her remarkably young age. Soon she will return
her eagle back to the wild as she moves on to her next big
challenge - going to university.
