The Fourth of July is a holiday of celebration, but also of reflection.
During World War II, Dorothea Lange created a series of poignant photographs depicting the internment of Japanese Americans. Uprooted, these families could only take what they could carry into the camps. This family—absent here but for their belongings—brought personal photographs and an American flag.
Have a safe and happy Fourth of July!
