China, another perspective. A look at everyday life. In every face & place there is a story.

I lived in China from 2005 to 2007. Most of my time was spent in remote areas, some rarely visited by Chinese outside of the area. Most of these images are of minority groups of which there are 56 or 57 that are considered official.

If you see something you like, please vote. I truly enjoy sharing what I have seen in this world. Such a fascinating place it is.
