"Family Portraits" of China's Ethnic Minority Groups

Here's a website, ChinaHush, with cool "family portraits" of the 56 ethnic minority groups in China. The photos are part of a project for a book, “Harmonious China: A Sketch of China’s 56 Ethnicities.” A team of 14 photographers spent one year travelling all over China to complete the project and ended up taking over 5.7 million photographs. I WANT THIS BOOK!

I included the photo of the Zhuang minority group because Zoe and Maya are both from the Guangxi/Zhuang Autonomous Region, and I wonder if they might be Zhuang.

Is the book out yet? I checked Amazon and they didn't seem to have this particular title... I was told quiet often while in China, that because of Mia's high forehead, she was most likely Zhuang - I want this book too!

It is cool isn't it? I'm going to get a Chinese friend here in China to see if she can find it. Wish me luck!
