Ting-Ting Cheng's photography captures cultures, languages and our interpretations of them through striking images of everyday objects. We're excited to release her new Series "I Judge a Book by its Cover", which beautifuly exemplifies cultures, languages and the distance between individuals

Each image captures a different series of books from a country. As observers, the only way we can interpret where the books are from is by looking at the title, or in clues in the color, pages, or text peeking out from the bindings.
