Arthur Tress: I Am a Camera

A quirky 77-year old photographer in San Francisco. Born in 1940, Arthur Tress is considered one of the last living masters of old-school photography. The film finds the photographer discussing his mortality and the creative legacy he will leave behind. Tress looks back at his life overcoming oppression as a young gay man. His haunting and often eerie photographs served as a vehicle of expression for his inner darkness and resulted in his pioneering the photo surrealist movement. But as he's aging, Tress' works are taking on a new simplicity and silence that reflect the artist's late-life peace of mind.
