Through Miyatake's personal and artistic life (he was very much engaged with other modernists of the 1920s and '30s), the film reveals the vibrant artistic and intellectual milieu of Los Angeles's Little Tokyo district prior to World War II as well as the impact <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"http://encyclopedia.densho.org/Executive_Order_9066\" title=\"Executive Order 9066\">Executive Order 9066</a> and Miyatake's wartime incarceration had on his artistic career. Using a camera lens that he smuggled into the camp at <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"http://encyclopedia.densho.org/Manzanar\" title=\"Manzanar\">Manzanar</a> where he was incarcerated, Miyatake reconstructed a camera and eventually became the official camp photographer, producing iconic images of camp life and the landscape of the Eastern Sierras. After the war, Miyatake was able to reconstruct his photography business and resume work at his studio in Little Tokyo. For generations, he was the community's most trusted portrait photographer, enlisted for weddings, graduations, and other celebratory milestones in the lives of Japanese Americans.\n</p><p>In a 2009 interview, Nakamura said that the \"film was very interesting to me because... [it] broke a lot stereotypes that we had about the early immigrants,\" going beyond \"looking at them as farmers, fishermen and small businessmen in Little Tokyo\" to illuminate the prewar Issei art colony in Los Angeles.<sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref1_1-0\"><a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref1-1\">[1]</a></sup> Nakamura revisited the topic of Miyatake five years later, producing what he called \"a much more elaborate documentary\" titled <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Toyo_Miyatake:_Infinite_Shades_of_Gray_(film)\" title=\"Toyo Miyatake: Infinite Shades of Gray (film)\">Toyo Miyatake: Infinite Shades of Gray</a></i> for the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"http://encyclopedia.densho.org/Japanese_American_National_Museum\" title=\"Japanese American National Museum\">Japanese American National Museum</a>.\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"http://encyclopedia.densho.org/Patricia_Wakida\" title=\"Patricia Wakida\">Patricia Wakida</a></b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Wakida, Patricia</div>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesDisplay\">\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Related_Articles\">Related Articles</span></h2>\n<p>\n</p>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesSectionDisplay\">\n<h3><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"\"></span></h3>\n<p>\n</p>\n<ul><li> <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"http://encyclopedia.densho.org/Dramatic_films/videos_on_incarceration\" title=\"Dramatic films/videos on incarceration\">Dramatic films/videos on incarceration</a></li></ul>\n</div>\n</div>\n<br/>\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Footnotes\">Footnotes</span></h2>\n<div class=\"reflist\" style=\"list-style-type: decimal;\">\n<ol class=\"references\">\n<li id=\"cite_note-ftnt_ref1-1\"><span class=\"mw-cite-backlink\"><a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_ref-ftnt_ref1_1-0\">↑</a></span> <span class=\"reference-text\">Interview of Robert Nakamura by Adam Hyman and Pauline Stakelon, May 23, 2009, Los Angeles Film Forum, \"Alternative Projections Experimental film in Los Angeles, 1945- 1980,\" accessed on March 31, 2015 at <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"http://alternativeprojections.com/assets/Uploads/Robert-Nakamura-Oral-History-Transcript.pdf\" rel=\"nofollow\">http://alternativeprojections.com/assets/Uploads/Robert-Nakamura-Oral-History-Transcript.pdf</a>, 102.</span>\n</li>\n</ol></div>\n<!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.112 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.116 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 430/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 3033/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 6978/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 966/2097152 bytes\nHighest expansion depth: 4/40\nExpensive parser function count: 0/100\nExtLoops count: 0/100\n-->\n<!-- Saved in parser cache with key mediawiki:pcache:idhash:2284-0!*!0!!*!*!* and timestamp 20171216031116 and revision id 27207\n -->\n<div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div></body></html>",
