Jerome and Rohwer Relocation Centers: A Description of a Project of Selected Photographs of Camp Life.
Friedlander, E. Jay
Photojournalism research includes the resurrection and editing of historic, seldom-seen photographs. A sample of this kind of research is a project at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock that involves selecting photographic material from a little-seen National Archives collection of pictures from the files of the War Relocation Authority, an agency charged with the removal and incarceration of more than 110,000 Japanese-Americans during World War II. The photographs selected for the project are of two camps in Arkansas, the Jerome and Rohwer Relocation Centers, and show various aspects of the camps and camp life. The project involves the selection of photographic material from the collection and its transference to black and white slides for use in combination with a narrative sound track created from interviews with some of the original photographic subjects. In addition, the project calls for new photographs to be taken of the remains of the camps. (MKM)
