  1. Hi Mr. Abe –

    I’m researching photos for the Topaz Museum, scheduled to open in Delta, UT, in September. I’d like to obtain a hi-res photo of Toshio Mori, who was interned at Topaz. The image we want was photographed by Nancy Wong (found on his Wikipedia page). In researching Nancy (not the same as this photographer: http://www.nancymwong.com/about.html) I found your page – http://resisters.com/tag/jeanne-houston/ which has more of her photos.

    Can you tell me how I might find the “right” Nancy Wong? Or perhaps someone who has access to her photos, where we could get a higher-res scan of her Mori photo and, of course, the rights/permission to display it?

    Thank you so much for any assistance you can offer.
