Eyewitness: Stan Honda

Following the devastation of the World Trade Center attack on September 11, 2001, photojournalist Stan Honda’s extraordinary images of dazed, dust-enveloped victims riveted the public’s attention to the covers and pages of national magazines and newspapers. Honda relates the aftermath of 9/11 to the unconstitutional incarceration by the U.S. government of Japanese Americans during World War II. His photographs of camp sites and understated observations alert us to the chilling parallels between the treatment of Arab Americans in the aftermath of 9/11 and of Japanese Americans in 1941.
