A photography exhibit in Harrisville called “Crying in the Wilderness: An Immigrant’s Journey in Detention” aims to show the physical and emotional toll of detaining and tracking an asylum seeker.

The exhibit is now on display in the Spinning Room at The Cheshire Mills Complex, 69 Main St., Harrisville, through Feb. 17. The room is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. An opening reception with light refreshments will be held in the Spinning Room on Saturday, Jan. 28, from 3 to 5 p.m. (In the case of severe weather, the reception will be moved to Saturday, Feb. 4, at the same location).
