H O M A G E
The photographs of Arthur Tress reveal pasts lost to memory. Family, youth, occupied spaces since abandoned, and gay male lives long gone. Trying to capture and channel his singular eye, his sense of isolation and symbolic mystery, proved elusive. Must. Try. Again.
Thank you to Paulo Madeira. He took these images in an abandoned factory in Alcobaca, two hours outside Lisbon.
