Arthur Tress: Facing Up
by Arthur Tress
Publisher's Description
On the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the original printing of “Tress: Facing Up,” announcing a special Limited Edition of this important work by the internationally acclaimed photographer Arthur Tress.

This important groundbreaking book was one of the first male nude fine art publications to be produced by a mainstream publisher. “Facing Up” was also one of the first male photography books dealing with the subject matter of documenting the New York sexual underground of the pre-AIDS era. Many of the images have become classics of the genre, and have inspired a future generation of photographers.

The Limited Edition contains an original copy of the 1980 publication, bound in rich black cloth boards, and housed in a specially designed cloth folio. The original cover image is a tipped-in gelatin silver print mounted on the front cover of the Limited Edition book.

Included with this Limited Edition are two specially produced free-standing eight by ten inch gelatin silver prints by Arthur Tress; “Kent on Slide, New York, 1979”, and “Surfers, Florida, 1978”. Both prints are signed and numbered by the Artist for this Limited Edition of “Tress: Facing Up.”

Only FIFTY copies of this Limited Edition will be made available for sale. Starting price is $1,250, but will increase as the Edition sells out.
