Photographer Kevin Miyazaki will give a lecture about his work, which relates to Japanese-American internment during WWII.

Kevin Miyazaki is a fourth generation Japanese-American. His childhood, in an overwhelmingly white suburb of Milwaukee, created a desire to examine his ethnicity and ancestral history. Stories from his family infuse his artwork, along with themes of immigration, forced migration, and social/economic mobility. Of particular interest is the incarceration of his father’s family and 120,000 Japanese Americans by the U.S. Government during World War ll.

Miyazaki’s work has been exhibited at venues including the Griffin Museum of Photography, The Haggerty Museum of Art, Center for Photography at Woodstock and the The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art. He teaches at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design and works as a freelance editorial photographer with clients including The New York Times, Architectural Digest, Food Network Magazine, AARP and Smithsonian.
