From Wyoming to Los Angeles


• “Moving Walls” by Sharon Yamato. Photos by Stan Honda. Published with support from a Japanese American Confinement Sites grant. 72 pages

Sharon Yamato’s curiosity about the people and re-purposed barracks that she found while driving outside of Cody, Wyoming led her write a follow-up to her 1994 book chronicling how two barracks from the former Heart Mountain concentration camp wound up inside the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles.

A filmmaker and author, Yamato provides a clear narrative to the haunting images in Stan Honda’s artful photographs. Ride along with Yamato as she peers inside the barracks to show us these new incarnations as storage sheds, garages, kitchens, and homes.
