About the Author
"Arthur Tress has been photographing for more than forty years, creating a diverse body of work that has been extensively shown and published and will be the subject of a traveling retrospective originating at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington D.C. in 2001. He has published fifteen books, many now cult classics, among them Tea Pot Opera (1988) and requiem for a Paperweight (1993)."
Within a beautiful antique fish tank, photographer Arthur Tress stages provocative tableaux peopled with funky knickknacks and flea-market heroes. Each scene is described in a wry poem. Together they weave a story with a timely message. The reader is drawn into a journey of discovery, in which Tress reveals the pitfalls of humanity and challenges us all to seek harmony with nature.
