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:

San Leandro, California. Greenhouse on nursery operated, before evacuation, by horticultural experts of Japanese ancestry. Many of the Nisei (born in this country) attended leading agricultural colleges such as that at Cornell. Evacuees will be housed in War Relocation Authority centers for the duration.
