WOW! We are overwhelmed to learn that an original article about The World In Faces photo project published by The Huffington Post (The World Post) in the US was shared by its readers almost 5 thousand times! To the project author Alexander Khimushin it means a lot. It shows that many people share his passion for the world’s ethnic diversity. It inspires him to continue his journey and take more portraits of people of different cultures all over the world. In 2016 Alexander has been living on the road 10 months out of 12 and the journey was really tough. The last six months he was driving an SUV alone, to the most remote places across Siberia. Alexander covered more than 15K miles behind the wheel and managed to visit all ethnic minorities living from Sakhalin Island in The Pacific coast of Russia to Yakutia, the coldest region on this planet and Buryatia, where nomads live in yurts in the endless steppes bordering Mongolia. Many of these ethnic minorities are largely unknown not only to the outside world, but also within the country. Alexander now plans to organize a series of grand exhibitions in Moscow, New York and Los Angeles that will display his outstanding collection of portraits. These portraits have never been published anywhere yet. Stay tuned!
