200 Ansel Adams Photographs Expose the Rigors of Life in Japanese Internment Camps During WW II


"... [Actor George] Takei and his family were among over 100,000 Japanese-Americans— over half of whom were U.S. citizens—interned in such camps. Into one of these camps, Manzanar, located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas, celebrated photographer Ansel Adams managed to gain entrance through his friendship with the warden. Adams took over 200 photographs of life inside the camp."
