Sights Unseen: The Photographic Constructions of Masumi Hayashi

May 31 - September 14, 2003

The Japanese American National Museum is proud to present the first survey of the work by Japanese American photographer Masumi Hayashi.

The exhibition includes 30 photographs that explore bucolic landscapes, and the unseen reality just below the surface. The photocollages come from five bodies of Hayashi’s work—abandoned prisons; Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Superfund Sites; Japanese American and Japanese Canadian World War II concentration camps; sacred sites in Japan, India, and Nepal; and portraits.
