What happens when an American photographer and two Chinese portrait photographers combine their talents over a six year period? You get an award-winning book called Little North Road which focuses on African immigrants standing on a pedestrian bridge in China. CCTV America’s Hendrik Sybrandy reports from Colorado.

New York-based photographer Daniel Traub was already fascinated by China’s connection to Africa when he discovered a pedestrian bridge.

He met two Chinese portrait photographers who were selling souvenir photos. Traub’s photos would illustrate the backdrop and provide a frame.

The book, called “Little North Road,” is the product of 25,000 digital photos taken over six years which were eventually distilled down to just 40 from each portrait photographer.
