The Internment of Japanese Americans was an experience that had violated the Japanese American’s civil liberties and had much effect on their lives during and after the internment. The War Relocation Authority was the U.S. agency that was responsible for the relocation and internment of the Japanese Americans during the War. This agency had kept the records that represent the official documentation of the whole internment process from 1942 to 1946. The War Relocation Authority photographers had, for publicity reasons, tried to make the internment experience look as positive as possible. As a result, there was a discrepancy between the photographs of the WRA and the paintings of the internees. The WRA photographs reflect the view that the WRA authorities wanted to present to the U.S. citizens during WWII which was to show that the Japanese did not hate the internment life and were going on with their usual lives without much sacrifices and hardships in the camps. On the other hand, the paintings that were drawn by the internees expressed the experience of camp life in a negative way by depicting their daily struggles to live normal lives. The artists, such as Henry Sugimoto, that painted these paintings had experienced internment camp life first-hand and even painted while in the camps so they have a much better understanding of how it really was like than the WRA photographers. But like the WRA photographers, these artists may have been biased in their paintings. While the WRA photographers were biased by depicting camp life better than it was, the artists may have been biased in that they exaggerated the negative aspects of their experience.
