Through A Lens Darkly

Part of Art, Politics & Protest series.

In this award-winning documentary, Thomas Allen Harris uses photos from his own family album to show how images of ‘blackness’ have affected his family and sense of self-worth as an African-American, making for a powerful testament to the redemptive powers of creativity.

Please note the previously scheduled Q&A with Thomas Allen Harris will no longer go ahead. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Harris and Perry have begun to unearth parts of African American history that may have otherwise disappeared, and have brought new authors to light. They are in the process of slowly creating a vast database not only of photography, but of identity and history.
