Manzanar: The Wartime Photographs of Ansel Adams

The Dallas Holocaust Museum invites you to experience history through the iconic photographs of Ansel Adams.

Manzanar: The Wartime Photographs of Ansel Adams tells the often forgotten story of Japanese Americans who were forcibly imprisoned in an internment camp in California during World War II following the Japanese military attack on Pearl Harbor.

Adams, the photographer known for his captivating landscapes of the American West, was invited to photograph internees at the Manzanar War Relocation Center between 1943 and 1944. The result: riveting photographs of the faces, the living quarters, and the day-to-day lives of Americans denied their civil rights and held prisoner due to their ancestry.

Manzanar: The Wartime Photographs of Ansel Adams is a must-see exhibition with a timeless lesson for students, families, and adults alike.

On view at the Dallas Holocaust Museum now through August 14.

The exhibition was organized by Photographic Traveling Exhibitions, Los Angeles, CA.

In Memory of Shizuo Tsujihara.
