The biggest board in the picture belongs to a chain supermarket, which is run by a Chinese immigrant. He went to the US as an illegal immigrant, worked very hard to acquire his legal identity and became very successful by running his own business. His story is both typical and inspiring for other immigrants.

This image by Libei Wu, a PhD candidate at the Centre of Development Studies, Cambridge, was one of the entries to this year's POLIS/ITLR Fieldwork Photography Competition.
