Film Screening—"Toyo Miyatake: Infinite Shades of Gray"
A screening of the award-winning film by JANM’s own Watase Media Arts Center about renowned photographer Toyo Miyatake. Miyatake’s thriving practice as a Little Tokyo–based portrait and art photographer was put on pause when he was incarcerated during World War II. However, smuggling a lens and film holder into camp, Miyatake made history by becoming one of the first to photograph the Japanese American concentration camp experience from the inside. Introduced by Making Waves curator Dennis Reed.
