A film about Toyo's Camera


"Toyo's Camera: Japanese American History during WWII" is a documentary film by Junichi Suzuki that looks at the Japanese internment experience through the lens of Toyo Miyatake's camera.

Miyatake handmade a camera with a smuggled lens to visually document the lives of those who were forcibly placed in the Manzanar camp. The original camera is now a permanent monument in front of the Japanese American National Museum. Bobby posted a blog about Toyo's camera here.
