Arthur Tress: Recreating Childhood Nightmares

Brooklyn photographer, Arthur Tress, brings all those childhood nightmares to life; the creatures on the stairs, the dark figures lightly grazing your shoulders…

After interviewing children of different ages about their worst nightmares, Tress recreates the terrors in this disturbingly beautiful photo series. Tress uses his hallmark style “magic realism,” a style that he describes as a combination of “improvised elements of actual life with stage fantasy.”
