Jack Muro Amache Photo Album

Licensing

This is Jack Muro, "The Undergound Photograper of Amache." This is his Photo album and supplements the Discover Nikkei Journal essay, "Jack Muro, The Underground Photographer of Amache." It contains photographs by Jack, who not only "took the pictures," he processed the film and printed the photographs with his home-built enlarger in his underground photographic darkroom which he dug-out beneath his cot in his and parent's concentration camp barrack. (Note: The tag, "The Underground Photographer of Amache" is my creation with Jack Muro's blessing. I wanted a nick-name hook) His photographs are shown full-image as scanned of his 35mm negatives. There were some amateur problems (under/over/double exposures and processing errors), but basically his photographs are well-composed, compelling and vividly capture his views of life in Amache, one of ten War Relocation concentration camps scattered throughout the USA during WWII. Now, view just a few of Jack Muro's photographs that were virtually unseen for almost 70-years. Some of his photos were displayed at an Amache reunion in Las Vegas in 1994, but beyond that the negatives were kept in a candy box and some of his photographic prints in various envelopes. Jack, 92 donated his extensive photographic collection to JANM in 2012. Please contact the Hirasaki National Resource Center of the JANM if you wish to use any of them. hnrc@janm.org * Editor's note: Gary Ono also wrote an article about Jack Muro.
