The story is a familiar one: a young, Jewish, Eastern European man immigrates to a new country, works hard, and with a little bit of luck, finds success in his adopted land. The time, you might imagine, is the early 20th century. The place, though? Not America, but China. Such is the tale of Sioma Lifshitz, better known as "Sam Sanzetti," who ended up making a name for himself in a trade not usually associated with immigrants of the time: photography. Yet Sanzetti was able to build up the most successful photography studio of the day in Shanghai, eventually opening up four branches throughout the city. When he left China after 30 years, in the 1950's, he did so with 20,000 photographs in his bags.
