Frank Matsura: The Japanese Man Behind the Camera | Speaker Series

April 15, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


April 15, 2022 at 7 pm – 8 pm (PT) via Zoom (sign-in required)

[in English]

Join documentary filmmaker Beth Harrington and University of California Irvine Professor Glen Mimura, as they bring to life the secrets of Japanese photographer Frank Matsura who came to the U.S. in 1901 when he was 27 years old. Known for his Western portraits of Indigenous peoples and those living in Okanogan, Washington, much of Matsura’s life still remains unknown. Why did he come to Seattle from Japan? Why move to Okanogan to set up a photography studio? Why did he start to take photos of indigenous people? Together Harrington and Mimura will give the audience a glimpse into possible answers to these questions and even premiere a clip from Harrington’s upcoming documentary centering around Frank Matsura.

✅ Register today!
(Registration will close at 5 pm (PT) on April 14, 2022)
