The World in Faces – Portrait project by photographer Alexander Khimushin

Photographer Alexander Khimushin has been travling around the world for 8 years, who has taken hundreds of portraits for his ongoing portrait series named The World in Faces, of which the subject matter is to show the beauty of diversity of ethnicity, religion and culture all over the world. “Especially in those remote places, where culture and traditions are still alive,” Alexander says. “There are hundreds of unique ethnic minorities in the world. If we all realize how unique and amazing we, the people, are, we will care more about each other, [and] be more tolerant to people of another ethnicity, religion and culture.”
