Manzanar: The Wartime Photographs of Ansel Adams

February 15, 2018 - August 14, 2018

On February 19, 1942, President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, a mandate that effectively required all Americans of Japanese ancestry to enter internment camps. Manzanar: The Wartime Photographs of Ansel Adams consists of photographs taken by famed Western landscape photographer Ansel Adams of the Manzanar War Relocation Center in California between 1943 and 1944. A controversial period in American history is depicted in authentic black and white photographs by the skilled Adams and presents a moment in time when Japanese American citizens were denied their freedom and rights at home due to their Japanese ancestry.
