Zhang Yu Hong, 38 – wood assembler.
“Where I come from in Hebei you can see the Great Wall from my village. It’s 60km away so I never actually went up it that often, but just seeing it there every day, looking down at you, was pretty inspiring. I still remember that view.”
“I’ve been working here for two years now. Before this I worked in the making of circuit boards”
”I make a good slow roasted pork. My wife likes meat a lot more than vegetables! There’s a market right opposite our flat that sells all sorts of fresh fruit, vegetables and meat – everything we need really. There’s even seafood.”
Zhang works on our collection of Karla armchairs.
