Some friends of mine, who some of you might know from school, moved to Santa Cruz a couple months ago. One of them, Tosh, was offered a position at UCSC, so it was kind of a no-brainer decision. He's now the assistant producer/director of photography in the Social Sciences division, teaching Documentary Photography.
He's also undertaken an ambitious documentary project on the Japanese-American Internment Camps. As part of this project, Tosh's partner, Crystal, started a blog called Memories My Parents Never Had. While ambitious in scope and logistics, this project is also super-cool, educational, and super-cool. Yes, I meant to do that. It's like an educational sandwich made with two slices of super-coolness. It's still in development, so I'm not going to spill anymore beans about it, but if you're interested, go check out the blog and leave a comment or two. And as you're looking, think about what it is you know/were taught about the J-A Internment.
