Sam Sanzetti (1902- 1986) - whose real name was Semyon Liphshitz - was a Jewish-Israeli photographer who came to Shanghai from Russia in 1922 in a state of great poverty. After working five years as an apprentice for another photographer he opened his own studio in 1927 at 171 East Nanjing Road. It became an immediate success and employed dozens of workers. Sanzetti spoke fluent Chinese Mandarin and Shanghainese, and married a Shanghainese lady.
