Program Description

The intention of this presentation is to question whether War Relocation Authority (WRA) photographs of the evacuation and internment of 120,000 Japanese Americans during World War II were value free documents or instruments of propaganda that reflected the political and racial views of both photographers and their government sponsors.  Prominent among the photographers under discussion are Ansel Adams, Hikaru Iwasaki, and Dorothea Lange.
