Biographical / Historical:
Born in Italy in 1841, Farsari moved to Yokohama from the United States in 1877 as a tobacco merchant, but soon delved into the art of photography. In 1885, Farsari purchased the Japan Photographic Association studio and stock from Baron von Stillfried. While a fire destroyed the entire stock, it was quickly reproduced within a matter of months, and Farsari moved his studio to where the Yokohama Photographic Company was located. A. Farsari and Co. would eventually become one of Japan's largest photography studios, with over thirty-one Japanese artists. Farsari eventually returned to Italy in 1890.
