The Perspective gallery will host the exhibition of photographs by Christopher Schneberger
Perspective Gallery is proud to present “The Wanderers” by fine art photographer Christopher Schneberger. This new series of semi-narrative paintings imagines a band of young explorers traveling through the territory. The young women in the series both portray the fantasy of expeditions imagined by childhood and illustrate the idea of getting lost and finding one’s way.
