Arthur Tress (b. 1940) is a quirky gay artist and photographer who was born and raised in Brooklyn and got his start taking pictures of the circus freaks on Coney Island. (My kind of guy.) After getting a BFA degree and living in Europe for a time, he hit his artistic stride in the period of 1963-1985 with a remarkable range of thematic qualities. For our purposes, we will focus on his homoerotic works from the 1970's. And yes, I'm stretching my 1975 vintage limit for this special artist.
