Series Example: Arthur Tress

The photographic series is an art form that explores a complex idea with a series of images.  The images, although interesting in themselves, work together with a number of other related images to express an idea larger and more complex than any single image could express alone.

In this series Aurthur Tress takes upon the challenge of expressing a poetic photographic exploration about children's dreams.  As you look through these images, consider what is common among them as much as what is different.  You'll see that a photographic series is generally "tied" together with common technical and conceptual aspects.  In this case, the images are all portraits of children.  All the images are almost the same shape, and all black and white. Having these these commonalities, helps point out the differences.
