Semi-Contemporary Photographer Presentation: Arthur Tress

Arthur Tress is an American photographer born in 1940. He began taking photographs when he was just 12 years old. He attended Bard College where he received his B.F.A. Then he moved to Paris to attend film school. Between 1962 and 1966 Tress traveled various continents and countries, documenting the cultures and customs he encountered along the way.
He is best known for the surrealistic style that he produces in his photographs. His images are described as "disturbing but intriguing". They are the kind of image you can't stop looking at while wanting to look away at the same time. His photos follow the rend of having contrast, unique lighting, dark overtones, and an interesting perspective on everyday objects.
