For Calderón, falconry presents a unique interdependence between man and animal, predicated on the falconer’s desire to connect with nature and the bird’s instinctual drive to hunt for survival. His interest towards the subject originates from his personal experience of having a hawk as a young boy. Struck by the years of discipline it takes in training one’s bird, he became fascinated with the obsessive, almost compulsory fixation one develops in maintaining this partnership.
