Benjamen Chinn, a Chinese-American photographer who won acclaim for his photographs of San Francisco's Chinatown, died April 25 at age 87.

Often photographing from the doorway of his home in Chinatown, Chinn began training his camera on his neighborhood in the late 1930s, but his most productive years were from 1947-1949 while he was studying at what is now the San Francisco Art Institute.
