Crime scene #2

Crime scene #2

Manzanar, Owens Valley, California, April, 1998.

I’m not much prone to political statements in my artistic work, nor am I given to nursing historical grievances, but this is an exception. This one for some reason has always stuck in my craw, even before learning that my high school girlfriend’s parents were compelled to spend most of World War II here.

Taken with a Minolta XG-M and the 50mm f1.7 lens on Ektachrome 100, scanned on a Polaroid SprintScan 35+, with severe exposure correction in the Polaroid scanning software, then cleanup, further exposure corrections, cropping, and duo-tone adjustment in Photoshop 7.
