This compelling collection of photographs by renowned photographers Ansel Adams and Leonard Frank presents two views of Japanese American and Canadian internment and incarceration in the early 1940s.

 

This exhibition provides an opportunity to reflect on the nature of forced separation and uprooting and the effects that it has on its victims. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, both the Canadian and American governments forced the relocation of citizens of Japanese descent from the coastal regions. Nearly 120,000 Japanese Americans and 22,000 Japanese Canadians were affected. The internment camps for the Japanese Americans were scattered around the US west. In Canada, the B.C. Security Commission was established to oversee the removal to hastily planned camps in the BC interior, or to work and road camps in other parts of the country.
