Spent the afternoon at a powerful photography exhibit Then They Came For Me that documents the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II. Some of the photos were familiar, but many I was seeing for the first time. The exhibit includes work from Dorothea Lange and Ansel Adams, as well as photography by incarcerated Japanese American artists Toyo Miyatake and Miné Okubo. The exhibit even includes clandestine images that recorded this unjust chapter of American History.
Along with this show in the Presidio, you can also visit the history museum at the Officer’s Club which has extended their exhibit about the internment.
Admission to Then They Came For Me is free and the exhibit is up until May 27, 2019.
