This catalogue presents REGISTERED, Leslie Hossack's exhibition of photographs inspired by Frances Itani’s novel Requiem. Hossack’s strangely silent images are accompanied by her thoroughly researched and carefully crafted observations about the experience of Japanese Canadians in British Columbia during World War II when they were registered, rounded up and removed. REGISTERED consists of three installations: Vancouver newspaper clippings from the 1940s; individual registration cards issued by the RCMP; and interpretive photographs of buildings in British Columbia where the story played out. Thus, the exhibition looks at the people, the places and the press in British Columbia during the war.
