INDIA PHOTOS: Fresh off the success of his groundbreaking photography book CHINA:
Portrait of a People, travel photographer Tom Carter announced his next destination: India. "Having already photographed the people of the world's most populous country, I saw it
fitting to now focus on the second-most populous country." The result of this epic
expedition, Carter hopes, will be his second book of photography, INDIA: Portrait of a
People. It will be the American photographer's first visit to the Republic of India, however
Carter will travel the entirety of the vast South Asian nation. "I intend to photograph all
35 states/territories and as much of India's 3.3 million square kilometers as possible. It
may take a few years, but I won't stop until I have created the definitive India photo

(ADVANCE REVIEWS) (EXCERPTS) 'CHINA: Portrait of a People': With limited Chinese language skills and an even more limited budget, photojournalist Tom Carter backpacked alone across the massive 9.59 million square kilometer Asian sub-continent, visiting over 200 cities and villages and documenting the lives of thousands. This definitive, 600-page collection of photos is his tribute to the People's Republic of China, with an empathetic emphasis on The People. Published in Hong Kong by Blacksmith Books / Haven Books (PURCHASE) (REVIEWS) “Tom Carter is an extraordinary photographer whose powerful work captures the heart and soul of the Chinese people.” Anchee Min, author of Red Azalea and Empress Orchid. “Tom Carter's photo book is an honest and objective record of the Chinese and our way of life, his camera leads us through 33 wide-sweeping scenes of the real and the surreal.” Mian Mian, author of Candy. “It takes a great boldness of spirit to set out to capture the essence of so diverse a people as the Chinese in a single volume of photography. The thrill is to discover that Tom Carter has achieved just that.” Asia Literary Review
