Jench is 18 years old and lives in Bokonbayevo. Passionate about eagles, he became an apprentice eagler at the age of 14. His mentor, Ruslan, owns 3 female golden eagles. Weighing up to 9 kilos, they hunt all kinds of game: foxes, wolves, jackals… Captured in the mountains when they were about 3 weeks old, they will be released into the wild at the age of 18 years, knowing that an eagle lives about 60 years.

The artist

After several experiences in editorial offices, at Vanity Fair, Arte or Figaro Magazine, Maïlys Derville set up her own business in 2018 as a freelance journalist. It was also that year that she crossed paths with Corinne Vachon, a French photographer who has been documenting the lives of nomadic and semi-nomadic peoples for over ten years. Together, they went to Kenya, Afghanistan, Romania and Kyrgyzstan, each time with the aim of putting into perspective the history of men and women still living mostly in tradition. But if some of them try hard to perpetuate it, others open up little by little to the rest of the world and to the evolution… Photography appears then as one of the best means to testify and leave a trace. During these immersions, Maïlys develops a real love for the image, alongside her mentor, Corinne. At the crossroads between the artistic and the documentary, her photographic work has only one ambition: to capture the emotion of a scene and the essence of its subjects.
