Photos taken for the American magazine Life All the photos from Life’s archives can be looked up on Google in many different topic areas (of course, most are related to American topics, but some are Chinese-related). Life magazine doesn’t exist any more, but some of the world’s best photographers used to work for the magazine. If you have any good photos of old Shenzhen, please send them to me!
