Legendary American photographer, Ansel Adams, currently has some unique work on display at the Prints and Photographs division at the Library of Congress. Best known for his idyllic landscapes photos, he took on a different venture in 1943 when he was asked to document the Manzanar War Relocation Center (AKA: Japanese internment camp). Using his iconic lens, we get to see how life was for Japanese-Americans at these notorious internment facilities.

This is the first time that this rare collection of portraits, landscapes and stills has been available for the public to experience. Check out some images after the jump.
