Cincinnati Film Society presents

Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People sponsored by FotoFocus


Venue sponsor: Cincinnati Art Museum in the Fath Auditorium.


Artist talk immediately following with Director Thomas Allen Harris & Producer Deborah Willis.


This film has a local Cincinnati connection with the 19th century photographer James Presley Ball. Ball, worked in Cincinnati for 25 years, both before and after the Civil War.



THROUGH A LENS DARKLY: BLACK PHOTOGRAPHERS AND THE EMERGENCE OF A PEOPLE is a documentary about how African American communities have used the camera as a tool for social change from the invention of photography to the present. This epic tale poetically moves between the present and the past, through contemporary photographers and artists whose images and stories seek to reconcile legacies of pride and shame while giving voice to images long suppressed, forgotten, and hidden from sight.
