There are 56 recognised different ethnic groups in China. What we in the West (stereo-typically) think of as being Chinese are Han Chinese and they make up around 90% of the population. As I mentioned earlier, one of our friends commented that as you travel around China you will feel you are in a different country: Which is true!
One of the most striking things is how this different ethnicity shows in facial features. Here are some portraits of different people from the South of China. If one goes further West then the Tibetans look different again and the Uyghur (Pronounced Wee-ger.... Kind of like someone from Glasgow) are distinctly different again.
We walked around a really interesting market (in the rain) in Yunnan, where most Bai people come from/live.
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
I am a teacher of Economics and have worked in various schools in Europe & Asia. One of the things I love doing is getting out and about with my camera.
