Elusive Truth: Four Photographers at Manzanar By Gerald H. Robinson, Introduction by Archie Miyatake

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 Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Four photographers—Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Clem Albers and Toyo Miyatake—photographed Manzanar and its residents at various times throughout its 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.
