Jerry Takigawa | Balancing Cultures at The Griffin Museum of Photography
Friday, April 23, 2021
About Balancing Cultures -
Initially an identity project, Balancing Cultures gives voice to a story suffered in silence by my immigrant grandparents and American-born parents. My mother’s passing left my brother and me with boxes of photographs. Among them were photos of family members taken in camp that we had never seen. In my family, when anyone spoke of camp, they weren’t referring to a pine-scented summer retreat—they were referring to the WWII American concentration camps sanctioned in 1942 by President Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066.
