CHINA: Portrait of a People

China has a population of over 1 BILLION people (*said with Dr. Evil pinky*). Internationally-published freelance photographer and travel writer Tom Carter has traveled extensively throughout the 33 provinces of China documenting the 56 wide-ranging ethnic groups that compose the vast nation, collected in his book CHINA: Portrait of a People. This book is the most comprehensive collection of imagery of conteporary China ever published by a single author. From Mongolian wrestlers to prostitutes and Tibetan monks, Carter gained the trust of the subjects, sometimes putting his life at risk, capturing the many fascinating faces that make up the overwhelmingly diverse nation.  

Currently, Carter is traveling across the nation of India, photographing his next book, INDIA: Portrait of a People. I can only imagine the beauty that will be bound in that book.
