Revised Edition. In 1942 the United States government declared 110,000 American Japanese residents of the United States a threat to national security and incarcerated them in eleven relocation camps around the country. One such camp, Manzanar, was located near Lone Pine in the Owens River Valley on the East side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Four photographers Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Clem Albers and Toyo Miyatake photographed Manzanar and its residents at various times throughout its three year existence. Their photographs tell the story of Manzanar from four different perspectives. Taken together, they offer a glimpse of the elusive truth of the relocation camps a cautionary and poignant tale of pain, injustice, and the triumph of the human spirit. In 1942 110,000 American Japanese were incarcerated in relocation camps. One camp, Manzanar, was photographed by Ansel Adams and Dorothea Lange, etc. These photographs present a tale of pain, injustice, and the triumph of the human spirit.

About the Author:

Jerry Robinson attended workshops conducted by Minor White from 1959 to 1962 and assisted him in his Oregon workshops in 1963. Robinson served as legal counsel to Aperture until Minor White died. At White s urging, Robinson met Brett Weston in 1962, and they became close personal and photography friends for many years. Robinson introduced Weston to the beautiful Oregon coast, and the two photographed together throughout the West, including Alaska and Hawaii. Robinson has exhibited individually and in groups in Oregon from 1960 to 1995. His prints are held in the collections of the George Eastman House, San Francisco Museum of Art, University of Oregon Museum of Art, Chicago Art Institute, Princeton University Museum of Art, and the Portland Art Museum. Robinson is the author of two books published by Carl Mautz Publishing, Elusive Truth: Four Photographers at Manzanar and Photography, History and Science. I have always seen photography as a kind of magic that enables a person to seize a slice of reality and record it. But the truth is something else, and far more difficult to portray. Truth is always elusive. Gerald H. Robinson

Review:

"I came away both informed and moved." --Peter Bunnell, Photo Historian
