A new exhibition at the New Orleans Photo Alliance looks at the history of xenophobia targeted toward Japanese Americans.
The New Orleans Photo Alliance (NOPA) hosts an opening for Jerry Takigawa’s “Balancing Cultures,” a solo exhibition of works by the photographer, who won NOPA’s 2017 Clarence John Laughlin Award. With “Balancing Cultures,” Takigawa takes a personal look at the effects of the xenophobia and injustice faced by Japanese Americans following the relocation of West Coast residents to internment camps during World War II.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit NOPA’s website.
