It was not until the last decade that the county became more ethnically diverse than California as a whole with a 97% increase in Latinos and a 177% increase in Asians. . . . Today, at least 47 languages are spoken in the public schools; cities brim with ethnic restaurants, churches and shopping areas such as Little Saigon. . . .

When photographer Irving Penn, best known for his high-fashion work, began in the 1970s making gorgeous platinum prints of cigarette butts he found on the sidewalks of New York, it seemed a brazen act. Penn was not the first to elevate cast-offs to high-art status. (Kurt Schwitters, for example, made wry and tender collages out of cigarette wrappers and other materials back in the 1920s). But the photographer seemed to dramatize how artistic scrutiny can transform even the humblest, filthiest objects into bizarrely glamorous images.

Row upon row of black, tar-paper barracks here have been replaced by uniform fields of alfalfa. This remote Indian reservation offers no hint today that the internment camp here during World War II was a watershed experience for Japanese-Americans. No monument stands at the Poston Relocation Center, just a small engraving on a decaying, graffiti-covered gymnasium that says it was "built by the Japanese residents of Poston, 1943."
