JA Resettlement- Through The Lens by Lane Ryo Hirabayashi with Kenichiro Shimada

Photographs by Hikaru Carl Iwasaki

Foreword by the Honorable Norman Y. Mineta

"In Japanese American Resettlement through the Lens, Lane Ryo Hirabayashi gathers a unique collection of photographs by War Relocation Authority photographer Hikaru Iwasaki, the only full time WRA photographer from the period still living.

With substantive focus on resettlement--and in particular Iwasaki's photos of Japanese Americans following their release from WRA camps from 1943 to 1945--Hirabayashi explores the WRA's use of photography in its mission not only to encourage "loyal" Japanese Americans to return to society at large as quickly as possible but also to convince Euro-Americans this was safe and advantageous. Hirabayashi also assesses the relative success of the WRA project, as well as the multiple uses of the photographs over time, first by the WRA and then by students, scholars, and community members in the present day."
