FDR Presidential Library to Present Hirahara Camp Photos


From over 2,000 photos taken and developed in a secret darkroom in a World War II Japanese American incarceration camp, this photo of a man standing on the road between the barracks in lower block 15 in Heart Mountain, Wyo. in 1944 and taken by high school-aged photographer Frank C. Hirahara is one of the most iconic photos from the Washington State University George and Frank C. Hirahara Photo Collection. (Photo Courtesy of the George and Frank C.
