Tom Carter, an inveterate vagrant who flirts with pictures and words, spent 2 straight years backpacking a groundbreaking 35,000 miles across all 33 Chinese provinces, and was named “one of China’s foremost explorers” by The World of Chinese magazine. His first book CHINA: Portrait of a People has been hailed as “the most comprehensive book of photography on modern China ever published by a single author.” He is also the editor of Unsavory Elements, an anthology book about foreign expats in China. Tom was born and raised in the City of San Francisco but has called China home since 2004.
