Whispered Silences: Japanese American Detention Camps, Fifty Years Later

May 3 - September 14, 1997

Whispered Silences features the work of fine-arts photographer Joan Myers who embarked on a journey to photograph all ten World War II War Relocation Authority concentation camps. The result of her odyssey is a series of haunting black and white images of the camps as they appear today and the relics that were left behind. Developed by the Smithsonian Institution's Traveling Services, this exhibition also includes text by Japanese American historian, Dr. Gary Okihiro.
