View: Nov. 17, 2018 – April 28, 2019
Gambatte! Legacy of an Enduring Spirit, going on view at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles on Nov. 17, presents large-format contemporary photos taken by Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Paul Kitagaki Jr. next to images shot 75 years ago by such noted photographers as Dorothea Lange, Ansel Adams, and others.
Each pairing features the same individuals or their direct descendants as the subject matter and brings to light the stories of Japanese Americans who were forcibly incarcerated during World War II.
Inspired by the Japanese concept of gambatte — to triumph over adversity —the exhibition chronicles the strength and legacy of a generation of Japanese Americans who persevered over unimaginable hardship.
The exhibition will remain on view through April 28, 2019, and is included in regular museum admission.
