About Tom Carter
An inveterate vagrant who flirts with pictures and words, Tom Carter 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 the editor of Unsavory Elements, an anthology about foreign expats in China. And he also co-authored a Chinese-language travelogue, The Farther I Walk, The Closer I Get To Me (走得越远,离自己越近), with his wife Hong Mei about their year backpacking together across India. Tom was born and raised in the City of San Francisco, graduated with a degree in Political Science from the American University in Washington, D.C., and has called China home since 2004.
