Rafu Shimpo: Haynes Foundation Grant Preserves Photographs Documenting JA Life In LA

Rafu Shimpo: Haynes Foundation Grant Preserves Photographs Documenting JA Life In LA. “Specifically, the grant will be used to create the Ninomiya Photography Studio Collection Access Project at CSUDH and preserve, catalog, and archive approximately 10,000 packets of photographic negatives taken by the former studio, which was owned and operated by Japanese American photographer Ichiro Ninomiya in Little Tokyo. Dating between 1949 and 1970, the negatives document the daily life of Japanese Americans in Los Angeles during the mid-20th century — individual and family portraits, passport photos, pictures of Los Angeles architecture and Little Tokyo, women in traditional Japanese clothing, entertainers, and much more.”
