About Our Photography


Much of the photography featured on this website, including on the home page and in our galleries, has been generously provided by Josh Summers, a language student, teacher, photographer, and self-published author based in Urumqi. His Xinjiang travel guide, published in 2015, is the most comprehensive and up-to-date source of local information for visitors to the region. It is our biased but very sincere recommendation that, before you travel to Xinjiang for tourism, business, or academic study, you should add this e-book to your collection. 

Visit Josh’s Amazon page to learn more about Xinjiang: A Traveler’s Guide to Far West China.
