An exhibit featuring photographs from the new book Colors of Confinement: Rare Kodachrome Photographs of Japanese American Incarceration in World War II opens on Wednesday, October 3, at the William and Ida Friday Center in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Colors of Confinement 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. The book—headed into its second edition, with plans for a Japanese translation—has received wide acclaim since its publication in August 2012 by the University of North Carolina Press and CDS Books of the Center for Documentary Studies. 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.
Colors of Confinement editor Eric Muller has been giving presentations and signing copies of the book at various local and national venues, including a recent event at the Center for Documentary Studies. Upcoming events include:
