Tomine on Rememberance Day

February 19 is the day that the Japanese community in the United States remembers the forced removal and incarceration of over 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry in the United States during World War. On that occasion, Adrian Tomine and the organisation Tsuru for Solidarity have published a limited edition print, called San Francisco, 1942. 

The image is based on a photograph by Dorothea Lange that shows Tomine’s grandmother right before she and his grandfather were sent to  segregation camps for four years. 

The print is available until February 21.
