Shane Sato Photo Exhibit Opening & Talk Story

Please join us for a new Photo Exhibit Opening and “Talk Story” with Shane Sato on Sat, Oct 19th, 2019 at 1:00pm.

8 years in the making, photographer Shane Sato has been shooting moving portraits of Nisei soldiers to create a one of a kind coffee table book. Poignant images of men who fought for America while America put their families and loved ones in prison. This 184-page 12x12 hardcover book contains portraits of over 80 Japanese American WWII veterans. The story of the Nisei is inspiring… and each portrait is accompanied by candid photos and a short story—usually a personal one, whenever possible. This portrait book is not just a glimpse into Japanese American history, but a triumphant story of American history.
