While bringing cameras into internment camps was prohibited, one photographer smuggled in his own camera lens and built a camera to take photographs of life behind barbed wires in Manzanar War Relocation Center. That man was photographer Toyo Miyatake. Through an artistic medium, Miyatake captured the devastating conditions during WWII, when Japanese Americans could not belong to Japan or America.
