Moving Images: Photography and the Japanese American Incaceration by Jasmine Alinder.

Thu, 09/23/2010 – 6:00pm

Co-presented with DENSHO. We continue our ongoing collaboration with Densho, the Seattle-based Japanese American legacy project, with a special program by historian Jasmine Alinder. She will speak about her book, Moving Images: Photography and the Japanese American Incarceration (University of Illinois Press). Published as part of a series edited by esteemed historian and former Seattle resident Roger Daniels, Moving Images examines how photography was used to document and present the World War II impounding of Japanese Americans, and includes analysis of work by Dorothea Lang, Ansel Adams, and Manzanar inmate Toyo Miyatake, who secretly constructed his own camera to document camp life. For more about Densho, its extensive photo archives, oral histories, articles, and programs, please see
