ANSEL ADAMS AT MANZANAR!!!!

Ansel Adams at Manzanar opens on NOVEMBER 11, 2006 and will run until February 18, 2007.

Spurred by a sense that democracy had failed during World War II with the U.S. government's unconstitutional incarceration of thousands of Japanese Americans, photographer Ansel Adams visited the Manzanar, California concentration camp in 1943 and 1944 to document the inmates efforts to build a community within a prison. Usually overshadowed by his iconic American landscapes, the Manzanar photographs allowed Adams "to show (that) these people, suffering under a great injustice, and loss of property, businesses and professions, had overcome the sense of defeat and despair by building for themselves a vital community in an arid (but magnificent) environment."

This photographic exhibition, Ansel Adams at Manzanar, is organized by the Honolulu Academy of Arts and will feature more than fifty of Adams' vintage prints, including portraits and photgraphs of inmates working outdoors with the backdrop of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
