CENTER presents an exhibition of photographs by Jeanine Michna-Bales featuring work from her project Through Darkness to Light: Seeking Freedom on the Underground Railroad. The artist spent ten years researching and retracing the journey of escaped slaves along the path of the nearly 1,400 mile Underground Railroad. Her photographs are taken at night capturing the places much as those who traveled along this route saw them many decades ago. Princeton Architectural Press published and released the book of the same title in 2017. Copies will be available at photo-eye.
