Born in Germany to a family of scholars, Arnold Genthe (1869-1942) was a recent Ph.D. in classical philology when he came to the United States in 1895 to work for two years as a tutor.

Back in 1908, Genthe spent six months in Japan, documenting the everyday life of Japanese during the Meiji period. After his death, the Library of Congress acquired approximately 20,000 never before seen photographs from his studio, and now you can see some of them too!
