Biography

Iwata, Jack Masaki (1912-1992). Photographer. Through his images, Iwata chronicled not only the evolution of U.S.-Japan relations for nearly six decades, but was especially immersed in the popular culture of both countries, photographing scores of Japanese and American celebrities in the 1950s and 60s. A Kibei Nisei born in Seattle, Iwata spent his formative years in Hiroshima Prefecture where he attended the Sotoku Chugakko. In recognition of his scholastic achievements, his father presented him with his first camera-a unique gift by any standard in Japan during that period. With the help of a local studio, Iwata learned the process for developing photos and his fascination with the craft of photography continued to blossom.
In 1928, he returned to the United States where he worked for his father while attending Whittier College. Never far removed from his passion, Iwata continued to take photos of events taking place in the Nikkei community as well as accompanying his father on a number of nature outings to the nearby mountains and seashore. His professional career began in 1937 when famed Little Tokyo photographer, Toyo Miyatake took an interest in the young Iwata, offering him a position at his studio. Having married in 1938, Iwata continued to work for Miyatake until the outbreak of World War II when he and his wife were forcibly removed to the Manzanar Concentration Camp. He rejoined forces with Miyatake at Manzanar and helped to organize the camp's first photo lab. Reuniting with his father at the Tule Lake Concentration Camp, Iwata was appointed the official camp photographer in 1945 where he captured some of the most poignant pictures of his career.
In 1946 Iwata returned with his family to Los Angeles where he continued to work for Miyatake. After a brief stint operating his own photography studio, "Jack's Photo Lab," Iwata joined the Kyodo News Service as a "stringer," and ultimately became one of the agency's most invaluable representatives. While at Kyodo News, Iwata became known for his stunning photographs of celebrities as diverse as Elvis Presley, John Wayne, Bette Davis, and Elizabeth Taylor, in addition to scores of Japanese notables. He played a fundamental role in the founding of Kyodo News California Inc. in 1986 and was general manager of that organization until his death in 1992 at the age of eighty.

Then I hope you may say that Manzanar was a war time city that sprang up from the sands of the desert of Inyo and returned to desert with the end of the War. It was the largest city between Los Angeles and Reno. It was a city serving a War time purpose where people lived in peace and good will, where schools were of as high a rank as other California schools, and where students dedicated their future lives to the American way of living. I hope you may say that that [sic] Manzanar was an experience worth living, where the important realities of life were made clear and where there was time and opportunity to prepare for participation in the work of winning the peace based on tolerance, understanding and good will. The graduates of Manzanr [sic] have a great contribution to make in determining the kind of world that is to come after the War."
