Q&A with Thomas Allen Harris Thomas Allen Harris talked about his film, Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People, in which he explores how African-Americans have been portrayed in photographic images from the time of slavery through the present. He explained how the images of African-Americans presented by white culture and photographers differ from those taken by black people, from family photo albums to famous African-American photographers. He argued that a truer representation of African-American life and success in America is shown through the latter. He also spoke about his estrangement from his father, which played a role in his film. close
