Japanese-American Internment, In Striking Pictures

Jan 11, 2017

The shipping of Japanese-Americans to prison camps during World War II is not one of the prouder episodes in American history.  But it is a well-documented episode.

Some of the best-known American photographers of the time, including Dorothea Lange and Ansel Adams, captured images of American citizens held captive in the name of security. 

A new collection of the photographs is offered in the book Un-American.  Photo historians Richard Cahan and Michael Williams assembled the collection. 

They visit to talk about the project, and some of the stunning images they curated.
