You are extraordinary. No, really. We've seen your hidden talents — but has the rest of the world? Enter Citizens of Shanghai, a learning project started by Miao, an expat living in Shanghai. Started as a personal discovery, Citizens of Shanghai exposes the fascinating people of this city to the world. Each citizen is photographed and given the opportunity to share his or her unique story. You'll discover people such as Mr. Zhou, a 71-year-old tailor who has been living and working inside a 1-by-2 meter shed for the last 21 years, or Mr. Ma, an elderly gentleman who has been crafting wonderful sculptures for the last 20 years. You could be next.
