About: Contrary to interdependence, the whisper of loneliness isolates people from self and others while simultaneously evoking a longing for interpersonal connection. In Liminal Connections, the uncertain tension between one’s desire to relate and the actualization of relationship thematically connects Christopher Schneberger’s two tonally contrasted digital photographic series: The Wanderers and Glimmer: The Haunting of the Graham House. While the Scouts in The Wanderers seek to relate with one another, the land and self, the Graham House family in Glimmer expresses their individual striving for connection with the ghost of a young woman, and vice versa. Serving as connective tissue between these two narrative projects are selected works from Spaces which includes various series that illustrate liminal space through interior, urban, and rural imagery. These immersive narratives encourage the viewer to find comfort and respite in the ambiguity of connection.
Christopher Schneberger (b. 1970) is a Chicago-based photographer who has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is an Assistant Professor of Photography and Director of the Shircliff Gallery of Art at Vincennes University.
