Ansel Adams - A Portrait of Manzanar

Now Showing

Photos by Ansel Adams, text, artifacts, and video: the experience of Japanese Americans who were forcibly removed from their homes and incarcerated during World War II.

Adams was invited by the camp commander to visit the Manzanar "War Relocation Center" in 1943.  He was permitted to photograph everything except the barbed wire fences and guard towers, images that would have undermined the official storyline that the move to the camps was a "voluntary migration."  The result is an extraordinary collection of images of Japanese American camp residents, their living quarters, and the places where they worked or went to school.  Adams felt this story was so important that he self-published a book of camp photos with an accompanying text.  

The exhibit includes an optional twenty minute video that features historical newsreel footage and interviews with residents of the camp recalling their experiences.

New Exhibit - The Overland Westerners

100 years ago, four intrepid Kitsap County adventurers set out on horseback for a three-year, 20,000 mile expedition to all 48 state capitals.  Photos and details of the journey, the men, their 5 horses and 1 dog.
