Tom Carter, China. Portrait of a people

Nine years ago, Carter traveled from San Francisco to China, responding to a job posting that turned out to be a scam. He managed to find another job as a teacher, and saved enough money to embark on a 56,000 km trip through all of China’s 33 provinces that lasted two years. Carrying a camera — just a a 4-megapixel point-and-shoot — Carter captured some amazing images of the widely varying landscape, people, and architecture across the nation. He then collected 900 of these photos into a book titled CHINA: Portrait of a People. Carter writes that his photos help to show that « China is not just one place, one people, but 33 distinct regions populated by 56 different ethnicities, each with their own languages, customs and lifestyles. » Carter was kind enough to share some of his portraits here, on the day that The Atlantic launches its new China Channel.
