Dorothea Lange photographed successful chrysanthemum grower Ryohitsu Shibuya and his family at their home in Mountain View, California, on April 18, 1942. Days later, they were sent to Heart Mountain Relocation Center, Wyoming, under Executive Order 9066. The family returned to their home in April 1945 without Mrs. Shibuya, who had died at the internment camp.
