9780821226001: Arthur Tress: Fantastic Voyage : Photographs 1956-2000

Arthur Tress's career can be seen as a long fantastic voyage - from early photojournalism into the realm of surrealism, eroticism and minature worlds. This retrospective is an overview of Tress's career. As the title implies, Tress's work is full of fantasy - nothing is what it at first seems. His images contain dark undercurrents and light wit, violence and beauty, futuristic scenes and homoerotic and psychologically charged tableaux. The 250 images featured in this volume range from the early black-and-white work to the richly coloured surrealistic images of the 1990s and his latest, previously unpublished work in progress. Richard Lorenz, (curator of a retrospective exhibition in Washington, DC, in May 2001) offers an in-depth biographical essay on Tress and the development of his vision. An essay by noted photo critic John August Wood puts Tress in context.

About the Author :

Richard Lorenz is the author of multiple volumes on photographer Imogen Cunningham and the catalogue for a travelling show of Tress' work that toured between 1994 and 1999.

From Booklist :

Photography was surrealist before surrealism was invented. "Mistakes" in composition, exposure, and development produced results contrary to what had been intended but which were captivatingly fanciful and dreamlike, and soon odd images were being planned. Tress started out as an ethnographic documentarian but, partly inspired by the rituals he recorded, turned to ever more premeditated subjects. In an early project, he asked New York children to tell him their dreams and then posed them, with appropriate trappings, in neighborhood spaces to illustrate their sleeping fancies. His projects since the mid-1980s involve arrangements of tools, toys, furniture, dolls, and other stuff that Tress paints and lights to suggest scenarios and even narratives. Besides the short-term projects, Tress has made surrealist outdoor still lifes and male nudes over longer periods. The latter, including some of his best-known pictures, are implicitly homoerotic but considerably more apprehensive and even dread-filled than the nudes of fellow gay surrealist Duane Michals. But there is more humor and less darkness in Tress' highly polished work than the commentators here acknowledge. Ray Olson
