Elusive Truth:Four Photographers at Manzanar by Gerald H. Robinson, Introduction by Archie Miyatake In 1942 the United States government declared 110,000 American Japanese residents of the United States a threat to national security and incarcerated them in eleven relocation camps around the country. One such camp, Manzanar, was located near Lone Pine in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Four photographersâ€”Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Clem Albers and Toyo Miyatakeâ€”photographed Manzanar and its residents at various times throughout its existence. Their photographs tell the story of Manzanar from four different perspectives. Taken together, they offer a glimpse of the elusive truth of the relocation campsâ€”a cautionary and poignant tale of pain, injustice, and the triumph of the human spirit. 112 pages; 10 x 8; Illustrated; Bibliography; Index; Endnotes; 2nd Revised Edition; paper
