Arthur Tress: Rambles, Dreams, and Shadows
October 31, 2023 – February 18, 2024
At the Getty Center, Los Angeles


The first exhibition to chronicle the early career of Arthur Tress, one of the most innovative American photographers of the postwar ear. During his first decade as an emergent professional in the New York photography world (1968-78), his artistic practice evolved from being rooted in the social documentary tradition to a bold new approach drawing inspiration from the inner worlds of fantasies, daydreams, and nightmares.
