Photographer Dorothea Lange was hired by the War Relocation Authority to create a photographic record of the "evacuation" and "relocation" of Japanese-Americans in 1942. Her photographs were impounded by the government for the duration of World War II, and quietly deposited into the National Archives. Read more about the history of these photographs on the Anchor Editions Blog.

50% of the proceeds from this limited edition of 100 prints will be donated to the ACLU.

Dorothea Lange's Original Caption:

Mountain View, California. Henry Mitarai, 36, in one of his sugar beet fields on his mechanized farm, prior to evacuation. His payroll ran as much as 8,000.00 a year. Farmers and other evacuees of Japanese descent will be given opportunities to follow their callings at War Relocation Authority centers where they will spend the duration.
