Sandy Sugawara and Catiana Garcia-Kilroy: Show Me the Way to Go to Home (Hardcover)
A panoramic visual study of the wartime incarceration camps in which Japanese Americans were unjustly detained
This volume conducts an immersive visual journey through the incarceration camps that held 120,000 Japanese Americans during World War II. American photographer Sandy Sugawara (born 1953) and Spanish photographer Catiana Garcia-Kilroy (born 1964) tell the story of each camp through original and archival photographs, personal stories and government documents.
Interweaving prisoners' stories printed on translucent paper with dramatic landscapes, the design captures the multilayered feelings of anger, vulnerability, determination, cultural pride and shared grief of those who lived in these camps. The book also contains an essay by Donna Nagata, professor of psychology at University of Michigan, who has conducted important research on the multigenerational consequences of the incarcerations. Given today's continuing climate of intolerance, it is urgent that this period of our history not be forgotten.
