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