Jack Muro, "The Underground Photographer"

Jack evidentily handed off his camera for his friends to photograph him as well, shown here near his 6H Block of barracks. "Underground" might imply that he took his photographs secretly, but that was not the case. The WRA authority in Amache allowed cameras to be returned to and/or purchased by the internees in 1943.  Jack had many jobs and a lot of freedom to roam Amache and capture a variety of camp life images.
