Description: "Unflinchingly illustrates the reality of life during this extraordinary moment in American history."Dinitia Smith,New York Times Censored by the U.S. Army, Dorothea Lange's unseen photographs are the extraordinary photographic record of the Japanese American internment saga. This indelible work of visual and social history confirms Dorothea Lange's stature as one of the twentieth century's greatest American photographers. Presenting 119 images originally censored by the U.S. Armythe majority of which have never been publishedImpoundedevokes the horror of a community uprooted in the early 1940s and the stark reality of the internment camps. With poignancy and sage insight, nationally known historians Linda Gordon and Gary Okihiro illuminate the saga of Japanese American internment: from life before Executive Order 9066 to the abrupt roundups and the marginal existence in the bleak, sandswept camps. In the tradition of Roman Vishniac'sA Vanished World, Impounded, with the immediacy of its photographs, tells the story of the thousands of lives unalterably shattered by racial hatred brought on by the passions of war. A San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of 2006. 119 photographs.

Dorothea Lange was born in New Jersey in 1895. She worked as a professional photographer in San Francisco for fifteen years until the early 1930's, when she took her camera out of her studio and into the street, radically changing the nature of her work. When American Exodus was published she was on the photography staff of the Farm Security Administration.
