Arthur Tress (American, born 1940) was a trailblazer in the field of staged photography, directing his subjects in fictional and often surreal scenes. Born in Brooklyn, New York, he began his career as a social documentary photographer in the late 1960s, focusing his lens on the people of New York and the Appalachian region of the eastern United States. Initially concerned with such societal issues as poverty, pollution, and the lack of open space for urban recreation, by the mid-1970s he began channeling his creative energy into more personal artistic projects that delved into his imagination, dreams, and his own queer identity.
