Ansel Adams

Born Free and Equal: An Exhibition of Ansel Adams Photographs (Fresno Metropolitan Museum of Art, History and Science)
by Emily Medvec
Publisher's Description
This exhibition catalogue publishes for the first time Adams' little-known documentation of Japanese-Americans interred during World War II at the Manzanar camp. Adams photographed these exiled Americans in 1943; the photographs were exhibited at MoMA in late 1944, where Adams' political statement was diffused by the removal of many photographs and parts of text from the show. Likewise, the pamphlet intended for publication in 1944 was thwarted. Here, finally, is Adams' statement during wartime, in his own words, accompanied by a selection of the portraits he made at Manzanar. It is sure to alter our view of Adams as a man and a photographer, and of our treatment of those interned.
