Landscape scene in camp; a small figure in blue shirt and black pants carries a hoe or shovel over his right shoulder walks along a horizontal path. In foreground, tall grass is bordered by a barbed wire fence; a mound of dirt is at left. In the background center, a small bridge branches off the path into tall grasses and trees, where a row of 6 barracks sit in front of a backdrop of dark trees. Laundry hangs on a clothesline in front of one of the barracks.

Signed in medium, bottom left corner: H. Sugimoto, Jerome Ark. Written on back, top center: "Jerome Camp" / 15 1/2 x 13 1/2
