Artist Statement

In 1942, Dorothea Lange took a photo of my grandmother right before she and my grandfather were incarcerated for four years in U.S. government segregation camps. My mom (Tsuru for Solidarity co-founder Satsuki Ina) was born and spent the first two years of her life in these camps. In honor of Day of Remembrance, I’ve created an illustration based on Lange’s iconic photo--an image of fear, strength, and dignity that has meant so much to my family over the years. I’m proud to offer this drawing as a limited edition, signed and numbered print in support of Tsuru for Solidarity.

*More on Day of Remembrance

On or around February 19th, many Japanese American communities gather to remember the forced removal and incarceration of over 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry in the United States during World War II. This date is significant because it marks the passage of Executive Order 9066 which authorized what was to become the mass forced removal and incarceration of all Japanese Americans on the West Coast.
