Ansel Adams

A friend alerted Ansel Adams to the fact that there was a Japanese internment camp in the foothills of the Sierras. Ansel was outraged, took a trip there, and shot a series of photos to document the situation. Roy Takeno (Editor of the Manzanar Free Press) and a group are reading the newspaper in front of the Manzanar Relocation Center, California, 1943.
