The power of photography can re-shape perspectives and opinions on something and/or someone. It can be the one factor that can determine a person’s views about a subject. This documentary is a perfect example of how photography’s impact  has helped a culture show it’s true passion.


Award winning filmmaker, journalist, artist, and activist, Thomas Allen Harris, is currently in production with his fourth feature-length documentary, “Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People.” Co-produced by noted scholar, curator, and author, Dr. Deborah Willis, “Through A Lens Darkly,” is the first documentary and multimedia outreach project that explores how African American communities have used the medium of photography to construct political, aesthetic, and cultural representations of themselves and their world.

The “Through A Lens Darkly” project is part of a new generation of interactive media that expands the boundaries of participatory filmmaking by using both traditional documentary and multimedia platforms to engage television and internet audiences in new, creative, and transformative ways.
