During World War II, the United States incarcerated thousands of Japanese Americans -- some for up to 4 years -- in remote camps without due process. Two-thirds of the 120,000 people who were sent to the camps were American citizens.

Months after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Bill Manbo of Riverside, CA, was sent to a camp in Wyoming with his family. Manbo, an amateur photographer, documented his time there in stunning Kodachrome pictures recently published in Colors of Confinement.

Manbo's photos capture daily life in the camp, including shots of his family, a Boy Scout parade, and prisoners queuing up to see a movie. Check out the pictures from Colors of Confinement below.
