22-year-old Jiang Tongwan does his graduation embroidery in class of Hunan Arts and Crafts Vocational College in Yiyang, central China's Hunan Province, May 23, 2013. Jiang, graduated from Hunan Arts and Crafts Vocational College, is the co-founder of a newly-established embroidery workshop in the ancient town of Jinggang. The physical disability resulted from a childhood disease didn't cast shadow on his ambition of starting his own business. He started learning Hunan embroidery, traditionally considered as a skill for women, in college in 2010, when the school began to recruit male students. After graduation, Jiang rent a store with his classmate Huang Jinyu to start their embroidery workshop. Jiang wished that it is not only a place for selling his embroidery but also a gallery of excellent embroidery works from other folk artists. (Xinhua/Li Ga)
