The Dream Collector: Photographer Recreated Childhood’s Nightmare From the 1960s

Photographer Arthur Tress depicted the children’s nightmares using his camera and amazing photography skills. Tress interviewed many kids about their bad dreams and created a psychoanalytic series “Dream Collector” in the 1960s. This series illustrated the worst childhood nightmares in terrifying details.

These photographs covered divergent nightmares, monsters chasing the children, falling from a tower, being buried alive and humiliation of failing in the classroom. Other dreams included a variety of physical restrictions and claustrophobia, monsters at the bedroom window, and drowning. Many themes were less specific, more fantastic, and a number of the photographs elicit simply a mood, sensation, or recollection.
