In our first DESTINATION CALIFORNIA report of 2022, reporter/producer Gayle Anderson and photographer/editor/ co-producer Bob Keet explore the new exhibition BeHere/1942, an incredible augmented photography experience that tells the story of 120,000 Issei and Americans of Japanese descent being removed and exiled from their homes during World War Two, following the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor December 7th, 1941.  

Visitors of the Japanese American National Museum in downtown Los Angeles relive the moment via photography and unique digital photography created by one of the pioneers of Japanese new media art, artist Masaki Fujihata. ( ) The exhibition makes visitors the photographers during this painful moment in history.
