Part of a multimedia project that traces the history of African-American photography, Thomas Allen Harris's Through a Lens Darkly explores how African American communities have used the medium of photography to construct political, aesthetic, and cultural representations of themselves and their world.

From the early days of photography (before the brutal violence of slavery had ended), to contemporary renowned photographers like Carrie Mae Weems, this is a striking alternate history that subverts conventional narratives about race and art. Artists include, among others: Carrie Mae Weems, Glenn Ligon, Lyle Ashton Harris, Hank Willis Thomas, Coco Fusco, Anthony Barboza, Clarissa Sligh, and Deborah Willis. The fantastic score is composed by Vernon Reid.
