Exhibits // About Morro Rock: 100 Views, Photographic Series by Arthur Tress

Mar 6 - May 10

Overview // Arthur Tress, a world-renowned photographer based in Cambria, has been photographing Morro Rock two to three times a day since 2009. Out of over 1,000 black and white photographs, SLOMA curator, Ruta Saliklis, has selected 100 images for a new exhibition of Tress' work in the First Gallery from March 6 through May 10, 2015.

"As I get older — I've been photographing for about 55 years — I float between staged and documentary photography often in the same project. For the newest one, "100 views of Morro Rock," usually I am doing a kind of traditional photo reportage that relies on chance and juxtapositions. But sometimes I bring props or include my own hand or feet in the photo," says Arthur Tress.

When asked about the diamond shapes of this series, Arthur Tress states, "... shooting in this unusual format changes the photographic border from one of containment and framing to one of dynamic cutting and asymmetrical segments."

Details // A public reception with be held on March 6, 2015 from 6 - 9pm, in conjunction with Art After Dark.

Sunday, March 29 at 3 pm: Join renowned photographer Arthur Tress for a special tour of "About Morro Rock: 100 Views." Free and open to the public.
