Tom Carter was born and raised in San Francisco, and graduated from the American University in Washington DC. He spent over 18 months backpacking in Mexico, Cuba and Central America, and started his career as freelance photojournalist. He subsequently traveled thoughout all the 33 provinces/regions of China, and documented the diversity of its people and ethnic minorities.
Currently living in Beijng, his work was published by numerous international publications, magazines and newspapers.
All of Tom's galleries of China are worth visiting with no exception. My favorite gallery is of Xinjiang, from which this simple but marvellous photograph of a Chinese Muslim is seen praying.
