Eight years ago, photographer Alexander Khimushin set off on an adventure around the globe—and he’s been a permanent nomad ever since. This lifestyle has allowed him to see incredible sights while also teaching him a valuable lesson: people are the most amazing part of his travels. “Especially in those remote places, where culture and traditions are still alive,” he explains. “There are hundreds of unique ethnic minorities in the world.” But, due to forces like globalization, war, and discrimination, many of these groups are living on the fringe. “They are losing identity, language, traditions and, in some cases, facing total extinction,” Khimushin writes. This harrowing fact was the inspiration for his ambitious ongoing series called The World in Faces.
