Arthur Tress

Arthur Tress lives and works in Cambria, CA, USA. He was born in 1940 in the USA.

After graduating in art from Bards College in 1962, Tress moved to Paris for a period. This was followed by extensive travels, which often took him to distant places and cultures that were to have a strong impact on his oeuvre. Tress’ photographs are based on the surrealist tradition that was embraced by many photographers in the 1960s. He became a master at constructing imaginative images where objects are portrayed in theatrical settings with mysterious allusions.
