FREE DOWNLOAD ë CHINA By Tom Carter Rt A striking kaleidoscopic vision of China's lands and people The Beijinger Through Carter's journey of self discovery we end up discovering a little about ourselves and a land so vast so disparate that 638 pages of photos barely manage to scratch the surface Still CHINA Portrait of a People is a very good place to start peeling back the layers Time Out Hong Kong Travel photos taken by a stranger seldom fascinate But 800 color images captured by Tom Carter as he spent two years on the road traveling 56000 kilometers through all of China's 33 provinces make a dramatic exception Carter's weighty book takes an effort to carry home from a store But anyone interested in China should love owning it Cairns Media Magazine Getting a full picture of China a vast country with an enormous population a place that is experiencing sweeping cultural and economic changes is of course impossible But Tom Carter comes close It's a remarkable book compact yet bursting with images that display the diversity of a nation of 56 ethnic groups San Francisco Chronicle In China Portrait of a People Tom Carter shows us that there are actually dozens of Chinas The American photojournalist spent two years traveling 35000 miles through every province of China by bus boat train mule motorcycle and on foot Christian Science Monitor. Based on the thumbnail image of the book s cover even with the hot woman and the tasteful design and knowing only it was some kind of photographic spread on China I feared coffee table book or worse cheesy Chinese variety that would actually mar my coffee table the sort you can find in the tourist bookshops with washed out reproductions incoherent English and sappy token displays of ethnic minorities dancing in their costumesThe actual book once in my hands is unlike any other book I ve seen including those in the photojournalism genre It has a surprisingly small trim size of only 6 x 6 inches but at 638 pages and over 2 inches thick and weighing almost 3 pounds it s not a small book and probably better suited to hardcover than its fragile paper binding The weight is legitimated on the inside with the high uality paper stock and what I d guess approaches 1000 high resolution photo reproductions capturing the author s two years of traveling to every province of China freuently under spartan and the roughest of conditions Each province is prefaced with a map and a concisely written pitch along with beautifully succinct haiku like captions for many of the photos demonstrating that the author s skills as a photographer are matched by appropriate writing talent The descriptions and the variety of photographic subjects rural and urban landscapes ordinary daily objects transfigured by the camera and lots and lots of unforgettable people seem to form a narrative that pulls one along the lengthy book though most readers will probably prefer to dip into it at random than go through the whole thing at one shot Regardless it fulfills its evident purpose in being a comprehensive and enticing introduction to the country for people who haven t been to China and eually interesting as well for those conversant with the country I myself have lived in China for 13 yearsNow for a critical angle The gold standard of intrepid or hardcore photojournalism books and one that will probably never be eualed is surely American Pictures A Personal Journey Through the American Underclass by the Dane Jacob Holdt Holdt arrived in the US in 1971 with 40 in his pocket and spent the next 5 years hitchhiking over 100000 miles through 48 states and living with 350 families taking 15000 photos selling his blood to buy film and culling them down to 700 in his book which are balanced by a substantial and moving narrative of his encounters with the many people he met delving into their lives with a shocking empathy and intimacy often sleeping with both women and men to dialogue at the deepest human level and unflinchingly capturing with his lens the most horrific but sympathetic images of poverty and decrepitudePersonally I would like to see the Chinese euivalent of Holdt s book I suspect Tom Carter may even have witnessed some such darker scenarios or ruder encounters with people and made an understandable strategic decision not to include them inasmuch as he seems to be positioning his book at the polite end of the photojournalism spectrum calibrated not to ruffle any feathers in China where only the positive side of things tends to be presented Thus he does not refer to himself in the first person but adopts the objective reportorial the author and when he almost dies during extreme weather on the 5600 meter Drolma La pass if it weren t for a Ngari pilgrim woman who appeared as my own private Tibetan goddess of mercy literally carrying me the remainder of the spiritual circuit that s all we re told I want I want to hear the dark side of travel and see the underbelly of the country not just the picture perfect promotional product The author is certainly ualified to do this and I invite him to consider these possibilities for another project Bondi
