In the early 20th century, he worked as a botanist teacher in the Jewish-Slavic ghetto of New York. He began photographing in 1905, telling in photos about the fate of immigrants in the United States, showing their poverty, confusion and unrealistic hope for a better future — if not for themselves, then at least for their children.
