About this title


Male of the Species offers a biocritical essay on Tress and the development of his photographic vision illustrated with examples of his own work as well as those of several photographers who influence him such as Henri Cartier -Bresson and Duane Michals. Early portraits of boys and adolescent introduce this handsome volume. The photographs, dating from the 1950's through the 1980's, depict the beauty of men aging, of various cultures and were taken in a variety of locales including America, Asia, Europe, Mexico, and Africa. A selected bibliography is included.

From the Publisher:

Acclaimed photographer Arthur Tress continues to astound critics with his lively and unexpected photography. Encouraged by local archivist and photographer David Sprigle—Tress agreed to present the best of over thirty years worth of his male and erotic photography. The exhibition, called Male of the Species, was presented by Venice Beach's David Aden Gallery, fast becoming infamous exhibitors of unusually daring, fine-art photography. It opened December 3, 1999 from 6pm-9pm and will ran through December 19, 1999. The exhibition represented the first comprehensive history of Tress male and erotic photography.
