Perspective Gallery is proud to present a new show by fine art photographer, Alexa Frangos.   Titled "Ghosts of Displacement," this poignant series delves into the artist's family history, where the echoes of displacement and survival resonate deeply.  Through her exploration of photographs, papers, and cherished objects carried by her family across an ocean, Frangos enters a profound connection with the ghosts of the displaced. In each composition, she seeks communion with these spectral figures, honoring their legacy while sharing a post-war migrant experience that resonates with countless others. The series serves as a reminder of the profound impact our family histories have on shaping who we are today.
