JANM: Ansel Adams at Manzanar Till February 18

Ansel Adams at Manzanar

The U.S. had its own concentration camps during World War II – an ugly necessity at that time. One of these was the Manzanar concentration camp (officially, relocation center) in Inyo Country, California.

Photography legend Ansel Adams made a number of visits to Manzanar from 1943 to 1944 and documented the stark lives of thousands of Japanese Americans incarcerated there during the war. The photographs he took at Manzanar remain to be among the most powerful photographic records of the camp experience.

The Japanese American National Museum (JANM) is currently presenting an exhibit of those photographs through February 18, 2007. “Ansel Adams at Manzanar” is organized by the Honolulu Academy of Arts.

The Los Angeles exhibit includes over 50 vintage prints from the collections of the Library of Congress, the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, Arizona, the Honolulu Academy of Arts, and the Japanese American National Museum.
