In the 1960’s, American photographer Arthur Tress’ interest shifted from documenting things as they were to creating more surreal images. To do this, he enlisted the help of children, who would tell Tress about their worst nightmares. From listening to the kids’ bad dreams, he would get all of these truly bizarre and terrifying characters, themes, and symbols--the perfect fodder for the dark, disturbing pictures he was looking to take. Combining real life with the bone-chilling creations only a child’s mind could come up with, Tress’ photography will likely get your skin crawling in a way no other has before. Take a look!
