An Evening With: The Seattle Camera Club

The Seattle Camera Club, started in 1924 by Japanese immigrants, was known for its pictorial style and monthly journals. Authors David Martin & Nicolette Bromberg discuss the research for their book, Shadows of a Fleeting World, at the Henry Gallery.
Kathy Muir's insight:

VIDEO. Here you will meet David Martin and Nicolette Bromberg. David talks at one point about how hard it was to research in the mid 1980's and how methods are so different now.

Claiming the Oriental Gateway

Claiming the Oriental Gateway | Seattle Camera Club (1924-1929) | Scoop.it
In Claiming the Oriental Gateway, Shelley Sang-Hee Lee explores the various intersections of urbanization, ethnic identity, and internationalism in the experience of Japanese Americans in early twentieth-century Seattle. She examines the development and self-image of the city by documenting how U.S. expansion, Asian trans-Pacific migration, and internationalism were manifested locally—and how these forces affected residents’ relationships with one another and their surroundings.Lee details the significant role Japanese Americans—both immigrants and U.S. born citizens—played in the social and civic life of the city as a means of becoming American. Seattle embraced the idea of cosmopolitanism and boosted its role as a cultural and commercial "Gateway to the Orient" at the same time as it limited the ways in which Asian Americans could participate in the public schools, local art production, civic celebrations, and sports. She also looks at how Japan encouraged the notion of the "gateway" in its participation in the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition and International Potlach.Claiming the Oriental Gateway thus offers an illuminating study of the "Pacific Era" and trans-Pacific relations in the first four decades of the twentieth century.
Kathy Muir's insight:

A must-read.
