COLOR IMAGES OF INTERNMENT
To date, most of the images our team has discovered of the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II have been in Black & White. That is until now.
During WWII, Hollywood CA resident, Bill Manbo and his extended family were interned at the Heart Mountain Relocation Center in Park County, WY.
It was there that Mr. Mambo created a series of photographic images using the then new Kodachrome film stock. It is a healthy selection of these images that form the basis of the recent book by University of North Carolina professor, Eric L. Muller, “Colors of Confinement: Rare Kodachrome Photographs of Japanese American Incarceration in World War II.”
