Colors of Confinement
Colors of Confinement: Rare Kodachrome Photographs of Japanese American Incarceration in World War II showcases sixty-five stunning images from a rare collection of color images taken by Bill Manbo, an internee at a Japanese American internment camp in the early 1940s. In this audio slideshow, editor Eric L. Muller talks about his impressions of Manbo’s photographs, taken at the Heart Mountain Relocation Center in Wyoming, and some of the history behind the camps.

Stories have appeared in a number of print and online publications, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, and The Picture Show, NPR’s photography blog.
