This website is a means to improve awareness of those Chinese people who have little to no voice in traditional media outlets.
In China, the notion of face is quite important. Roughly defined, face is the social front, the ostensible display of one’s social standing to the public.
This website seeks to examine the identities behind the faces of our subjects, especially those who have little to no face with the outside world or among their Chinese countrymen.
Interviews are conducted primarily in Chinese, with the assistance of our correspondent and photography assistant, Cassandra Shi.
