WRA
Dorothea Lange



ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
Commissioned by the federal government, Dorothea Lange’s seemingly innocent photographs of Japanese-Americans from the early 1940s document something clearly sinister. The racially motivated relocation and internment of more that 110,000 people of Japanese ancestry during World War II.
Suppressed for the duration of the war, some defaced by military personnel, the photographs were quietly deposited in the National Archives, largely unseen and unpublished for decades.
Dorothea Lange’s work is perhaps more relevant than ever. With our current political climate, Japanese-Americans are no longer the targets but the government’s intent remains the same. Lange’s images are an important reminder of a lesson some have not taken to heart.
Additional contemporary photographs by Emilio Flores, Keith Skelton and Armando Arorizo
