Bring her men by the score.Photography, Arthur Tress has said, is like fishing: They both involve hunting and capture. During four years, he lugged a 100-year-old aquarium from one U. Coast to the other, filling it with assorted doodads and knickknacks from the'40s and'50s. Judith Simms, Los Angeles Times. The resulting images make up a powerful surreal allegory called "Fish Tank Sonata, " in which a fisherman learns about life and environmental responsibility. Arthur Tress distills multiple viewpoints in his unique and ever evolving style of photography. The cultural and historical inquiry of the ethnographer, the psycho-social guidance and thought-seeding of the stage director, and the calculating, sometimes improvisational, imagination and creativity of the artist all coalesce in Tress the photographer.

Distills multiple viewpoints in his unique and ever evolving style of photography. He is one of America's most prodigious and diversified photographers, one whose documentary reportage can be so subjective or fabricated that it subverts the genre, whose manufacture of visual Eros can present seemingly incongruous dualities of beauty and violence, and whose creation of an individual mythology in a universe of kitsch can make sense of the meaning of life, death, and the hereafter. Cavemodern was founded in 2005 as a home for important "modern" books and works on paper. "Cave" meant a home for both the tangible touch of beautiful objects and a cozy virtual den for armchair exploration.
"Modern" starts with the art and literature that went beyond realistic depictions to expressive use of color, non-traditional materials, and new techniques and mediums.
