Arthur Tress - Fantastic Voyage, Photographs 1956-2000 - Signed copy
"Arthur Tress's career can be seen as a long fantastic voyage - from early photojournalism into the realm of surrealism, eroticism and miniature 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from the early black-and-white work to the richly coloured surrealistic images of the 1990s and his latest, previously unpublished work in progress.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."
This copy is in immaculate condition throughout. It is a beautiful book of absolutely stunning, iconic and artistic photographs. It is also signed making it a valuable addition to the art lover's collection. Please note there is a small gift aid label on the signed page which will leave a slight residue when removed. There is a very tiny nick to the top spine edge dust jacket, barely noticeable.
