In conjunction with CENTER, photo-eye is excited to announce an exhibition of works from Jeanine Michna-Bales’ stirring series Through Darkness to Light in our Bookstore Project Space as a part of PhotoSummer 2017. The show runs June 2nd through July 15th, and SIGNED copies of the artist’s recently published monograph of the same title, will be available for purchase at the photo-eye Bookstore during the exhibition.

In Through Darkness to Light: Photographs Along the Underground Railroad, Jeanine Michna-Bales presents a remarkable series of images following a route from the cotton plantations of central Louisiana, through the cypress swamps of Mississippi and the plains of Indiana, north to the Canadian border— a path of nearly fourteen hundred miles. The culmination of a ten-year research quest, Through Darkness to Light imagines a journey along the Underground Railroad as it might have appeared to any freedom seeker.

Michna-Bales’ work explores the relationships between what has occurred or is occurring, in a society and how people react to those events. She meticulously researches each topic – considering different viewpoints, causes and effect, and political climates – often incorporating found or archival text and audio into her projects. Through Darkness to Light received the Curator’s Choice award during CENTER’s 2014 Review Santa Fe Festival. Michna-Bales’ work is in the permanent collection of the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, Duke University’s Archive of Documentary Arts, and has been exhibited extensively nationwide. The artist currently lives and works in Dallas, Texas.
