First presented in 2015, this traveling photography exhibition features contemporary images taken by photojournalist Paul Kitagaki, Jr. echoing historic images by U.S. War Relocation Authority (WRA) photographers who documented the mass incarceration of Japanese Americans during WWII.
Updated and expanded, the encore presentation includes 30 new photographs accompanied by audio interviews and a behind-the-scenes video. Additionally, the first-ever public display of artifacts from Kitagaki’s family’s incarceration at the Topaz War Relocation Center provides new insights into personal connections to his work exploring the Japanese concept of “gambatte” (to triumph over adversity).
On view Thurs., Aug. 5-Sun., Nov. 7, 2021. Visit the link below for details.
